His Masters Voice


I've always liked this painting and the RCA advertisements that featured it.

Now I like these gramophone chandeliers. You can see them at Dan Marty Design .

Oh, I love these!! My father collects gramophones...I wonder if he would enjoy these or find them offensive?? Either way, I think it is so clever!

I hope that the chandelier was made from a Victrola that was beyond repair! It's still fairly easy to get records to play on them, and suppliers that can provide needles and other parts to rehab them. There's just nothing like listening to '20s and '30s jazz on an old machine. The "Morning Glory" amplifier makes a good lighting fixture, but please only if it's no longer useful in its original context.
