A stunning and pretty rare example of an original HMV Gramophone cabinet. We estimate this cabinet was originally handmade in the 1930’s (HMW was founded in 1921 in Oxford St. London). It is presented in beautifully aged and carved solid walnut with superbly book matched walnut veneer to the doors and top. Originally it would have housed a fully working gramophone but this was long gone when we purchased it for renovation. We left the interesting parts of its heritage with some switches and switch plates. We fully cleaned and gently restored the walnut exterior and fully painted out the internal lower cupboard section (in Farrow & Ball Wevet Estate Eggshell).
We adore the coloru and grain of the walnut and the superb detail to the carvings on the legs, frame and book matched veneer. Quality touches throughout. This would have been an incredibly expensive gramophone when new. Probably one of HMV’s most expensive pieces. It now offers many options as a bookcase, a drinks cabinet, a media unit, TV stand etc. The choice is all yours.
