Listing for:
Rare, early Edison Home Phonograph from 1900 with red and gold banner decal on lid


The phonograph all set up is a sight to behold! The gleaming brass horn and attractive black and gold bedplate calls out from over 100 years of recorded history!

 


The red-and-gold banner is in above average condition. The lid, although having gained hairline separations with age, is fully intact and original, with original handle (often missing).

 


The hallmarks of an Edison: the gold trademark label and patent ID tag with stamped serial number. Overall, very clean!

 


Here is the carriage, note the early style reproducer clamps and the original wax cylinder shaver device.

This is the coveted "suitcase" style Home phonograph with the attractive red-and-gold banner on the lid. The Home was one of the first Edison cylinder models introduced in 1896 and was kept in the product line until 1913! This one comes from 1899-1901 and bears an early, five digit serial number. The oak cabinet and mechanism are all original, with a gorgeous Edison trademark in gold on the upper bedplate. The lower bedplate is in black enamel without prominent gold striping. The case is in above average condition and has a lot of character to add to fine collection. The mechanism is clean and plays well. This phonograph comes complete with a newer, appropriate all-brass horn and a quantity of original wax records and original reproducer. A scarce model of the Home that really stands out next to the later, more common models!
