In 1901 almost the entire line of Edison phonographs underwent a cosmetic redesign, with "New Style" green oak cases embellished with florid banner decals replacing the earlier plain golden oak cabinetry.

This machine is the New Style Edison Home of 1901. It is still considered Model A machinery. The red banner was replaced with a smaller, black banner around 1904.


Edison Home Phonograph
Upperworks were a separate casting, screwed into the bedplate. Note the reproducer clamps, rather than a set screw. Early versions of this machine were fitted with an automatic reproducer.

The brilliant red banner and green oak case make this version of the Edison Home a favorite of modern collectors. Celluloid dealer tags like the one on this Home aren't often seen but add interest to the machine.
