(To the rest of the list, Joel sent me two photo's of the machine.)  
Ooh, this is one of those cute little cameraphones, not one of the more 
common suitcase portables.  Note that a suitcase type is pictured in the 
lid decal.  I don't see any GOST number (looks like roct in cyrillic) 
which is the  government industrial manufacturing standard number, such 
as seen on most Soviet products including records after 1950.  That 
could mean it is pre-1950.  As you mentioned, the company name includes 
the word "Patephonni" which has its background in the pre-revolutionary 
era when Pathe had a dominance and became the generic name there rather 
than Gramophone.  While I think that the later machines this factory 
made still had this decal, I tend to think that this might be from 
before 1950 unless you find a GOST number inside it somewhere.  These 
usually sell for more than a suitcase type.
