Category - Bacigalupi Machines
Peter Bacigalupi was a prominent dealer of talking machines in San Francisco, and artifacts so marked are of special interest to collectors. This version of the Bacigalupi decal is the earliest, listing both Phonographs and Graphophones. This machine, originally selling for $25.00, carries typical “New York” style decorations and the Graphophone decal dates from late 1897 through 1898. A very rare example of the earliest Bacigalupi decal on a Graphophone.
