This article is part of the ANTIQUE PHONOGRAPH, GRAMOPHONE AND TALKING MACHINE IDENTIFICATION GUIDES.
SEE ALSO: Our listings of outside horn talking machines for sale.


Introduced in 1905, this version of Edison's economy machine can be distinguished by its plain "Edison" decal and its winding crank (earlier versions used a winding key). A 10" black cone horn is usually seen, although in later years a black baby morning glory horn was available.
