Edison Standard Phonograph - The International Correspondence School Model
The Edison Standard ICS Model was a popular way to get an education remotely.
An excellent set-up. Be sure to inquire about the original records available with this phonograph.
The bedplate is in superb original condition, with the original crank and Model C reproducer.
Here is the celluloid label.

The motor. Also note the green wash to the oak cabinet. Very nice, and totally correct.
This Edison Standard Phonograph is from the 1901-3 era, and was made for use in home education. The International Correspondence School operated distance-learning classes across the country, and used the phonograph and a set of specially-recorded cylinders as the medium. This is a nice example of this unusual set-up. Of course, it's still a phonograph, and plays all the early Edison cylinders. Ships safely from Chicago.
