While looking at some piano-related stuff today, I cam across this: https://mtr.arcade-museum.com/MTR-1913-57-23/21/

Apparently, Columbia at one time built a Grafonola in the shape of a piano. The ad is on pages 21-24 of the magazine.

Edit: Sorry I put this in the wrong forum. I figured because I was discussing a phonograph from an ad that I didn't actually have, this post would go in the open discussion section.

I don't know if it is the manufacturer you mentioned but a similar instrument is shown in the movie The Great Gatsby (the Redford version)

Columbia offered at least two variations of a piano shaped phonograph, one an upright version, one a grand piano version. Both were high end offerings. There were others also, Fern-0-Grand was one.
