    Can someone tell me if this Victor Victrola Talking Machine is Walnut or Mahogany? It was made in 1923 and the only other finish they came with was Oak. Pretty sure it's not Oak. Thanks in advance!

    I tried for about 30 min to add more pics, but it keeps saying the file is too large.

    Mahogany veneers with lesser woods stained to match. Looks like this has been stripped at some point and some of the color has been lost from the solids. A little mahogany stain to the light areas would help even this out.
