Listing for:
Early, rare 1899 Edison Standard


This Standard looks great with the appropriate all-brass horn. It's already 105 years old!

 


Here is the all-original bedplate and parts. Very clean and an excellent example of its type!

 


Here is a photo of the patent plate. Notice how clean the nickel-plating is and how early the patent dates stop!

 


The gold striping looks great here, and the speed control knob has no rust or corrosion, as you usually see on these.

 


What a nice little package! This model is known as the square-top model for a reason! And they only made them for a few brief years before switching to the "sewing machine" style case.

 

This is a rare, early Edison Standard from the 1899-1901 era. This phonograph is in excellent working condition with a restored "suitcase" style cabinet and original mechanical parts. It was designed to play the early, "brown wax" cylinders from before the "Gold Moulded" black wax records were released and comes with an excellent reproduction of the "Model B - Automatic" reproducer for playing brown wax, and two original brown wax records. If desired, we will substitute an original "Model C" black wax reproducer and black wax records. This phonograph comes with an appropriate newer all-brass horn, and the original crank. This is a rare, early Standard phonograph and an excellent item for the finest of collections.
