Listing for:
Edison "Suitcase" Home Phonograph with a superb banner and early serial number


Stunning! Check all the online sites and auctions - just try to find a nicer red-and-gold banner on a "Suitcase" Home.

 


Here is the bedplate in very nice condition. The 2-minute mechanism is in fine running form.

 


The mandrel, shaver, and carriage are in fine original shape.

 


The Edison Trademark is gorgeous, and check out the front-mounted ID tag with the "short" list of patents... remember, this is the EARLY Edison Home Phonograph made for only a few brief years before the LATE style Suitcase Home. A great one for your collection!

 


Looking at the case again, note the nice original condition of the oak.

 


Crank is original!

 


Left side looks nice too.

 

The Edison Home Phonograph was introduced in 1896 and discontinued in 1913. By that time, about 400,000 Homes were produced. This rare and desirable model is from 1897 at the latest! Check out the low, low serial number 8621 and very early style nickel plated mandrel. (This is JUST after the transition to the nickel mandrels from the brass.) What really makes this one stand out is the fine condition of the bedplate and the superb red-and-gold banner, just in standout condition. The mechanism and crank are, of course, original. With original shaver, original carriage (reproducer hold-down clips present!) and at a real bargain price.
