This Maroon Gem (also known as a Red Gem) is a rare bird indeed and a MUST for any serious collection of Edison Phonographs! This was the model D Gem and the more desirable of the 2 Maroon Gem models. This one has all original enameling and oak finish, and is better than average on most counts. Comes with its original and appropriate model K (combination) reproducer and playing 2 and 4 minute records. This phonograph comes with an excellent reproduction red horn to play your music loud. (Original horns for the Maroon Gem are SUPER rare... let us know if you have one for sale!) Comes with music and all ready to go.
