Stunning Edison Home Phonograph with 2/4 gearing and blue and gold striping decoration


This Home phonograph is silent for now... but with records ready to play, the evening should be quite enjoyable!

 


Note the beautiful grain pattern on the restored oak case!

 


The bedplate and mechanics are in great shape. All moving parts have been cleaned and lubricated for you!

 


Here is a close up of the bedplate showing the lovely fancy decoration on this model. Note the perfectly intact 2-4 minute label and Thomas Edison's trademark!

 


Occasionally, you may wish to put the lid on (why?), and when you do, just look at the lovely condition.

This Edison Home Phonograph is a venerable Model D -- the first of Edison's models with FACTORY-INSTALLED 2 and 4 minute gearing. That means that on this phonograph, you can play all the early wax records, all the music from the 'teens, World War I era, and even into the celluloid records from the jazz years! As a first phonograph, this one is a great bet! As part of a collection, this will quickly become a "show-off" piece: the oak cabinet has been expertly restored to like-new, flawless condition; the bedplate is gorgeously decorated with its original blue-and-gold fancy double pinstriping, and the mechanical componenents are just superb. This phonograph comes complete with 6 records to enjoy immediately, a 14" steel-and-brass horn, and will be properly packed for safe delivery to your door!
