Listing for:
Rare, early Edison Home Phonograph in the sought-after "green oak" cabinet and 2/4 minute gearing


What a pretty record player! With the appropriate all-brass horn, it truly is a step back in time!

 


Here's what gets the experts talking: an all original Edison banner decal and the original green oak, long case! This is a scarcer model than those normally seen on the market and a very nice machine!

 


The bedplate still has most of its delicate hand pinstriping and the mechanism on this model is really sound. The two and four minute gearing is activated by means of a simple, easy-to-use lever just behind the pulley. A very well-designed system!

 


Finally, no tour would be complete without a trip to the engine room -- the powerful spring motor plays strong and steady. Notice how the green wash looks on the inside of the cabinet? That is what the collectors are looking for!

 

This Home phonograph is one of those items that serious collectors do a double-take when seeing. It has the Edison Home Phonograph Banner that is so charming (and was only put on the early production models) and the transitional cabinet style. Aficionados of the Home phonograph call this the long-case style, as it is wider than all the common, later Homes. Moreover, the passing fashion of the era (circa 1901 or 1902) was to apply a green wash to the cabinet. This was a short-lived fad, and all later oak Homes were of a darker, chocolate brown oak, rather than this unusual green. Better yet, this machine has been converted by the Edison dealer to play the two and four minute records, and with such a powerful, all-original motor, it really can entertain. The phongraph comes complete and ready to go with an original reproducer, an all-brass horn (newer), and your choice of 4 records to enjoy immdiately. A rare and desirable phonograph!
