Here is an early example of the Decca "Rally" portable from the 1920s.

The early Decca machines are reputed to be the first of the genuine portable gramophones produced by the Barnet Samuel Company This Decca "Rally" is in very good condition and is an up-market model with the case finished in simulated leather fibre board. The gramophone plays well with the correct "Dulcephone" sound-box.

Several early models used the reflex system to bounce the sound to the listener via an aluminium bowl in the lid and this is surprisingly effective. In this example the back of the tone arm ends in a small bowl that acts in a similar way.

This is an unusual and interesting design for a Decca gramophone.
