Listing for:
Rare and unusual Edison Standard Phonograph Language model


This set up looks great -- you've got a nice Edison phonograph, listening tubes and horn, and plenty of records to keep you entertained. The cabinet is nicely restored, with all original mechanism, crank, and reproducer.

 


Here is Edison's name and the I.C.S. label -- that's right, this was a distance-learning aid back in the 1900s!

 


This bedplate is as intact as I have ever seen them! The gold striping is superb, the nickel plating very good, and totally original. This phonograph makes no apologies!

 


Want to share the music? The horn plays loud and clear, or, for private audition, just plug in the listening tubes and you are ready to go. This is a wonderful set up and a joy to share with your friends and family.

 

This Edison Standard Phonograph was made by Edison for use in the International Correspondence School language and other distance-learning courses. Several features are unique to this model: the special push-button repeater mechanism, the speed control (not present on this model of regular-production Edisons) and the listening tubes, to allow the student to engage in learning without bothering others in the room. This is a model that is not seen as frequently as the otherwise common Edisons. What makes this machine so great for a collection is that, apart from being a rare language model, it is a fully functional Edison phonograph! This one has a restored cabinet, with all original parts and a gleaming original black bedplate with gold pinstriping. This one has seen very little use! The listening tubes and horn are perfect reproductions and ready to entertain just you -- or the whole family! Three Edison records included, more available upon request. This one will quickly become a highlight of a collection.
