Today it's fashionable to go green for environmental reasons, but prior to 1905 Edison went green also, but for esthetic reasons.
The green oak finish was popular on the New Style case of 1901-1904, seen in this example. This finish, along with the colorful gold banner decal, make this model an appealing choice for modern collectors.
This is the greenest green oak machine I have ever owned, with beautiful clean original finish. Usually these machines tend to age darken and fade to orange over the years.
Mechanically, I have completely gone through this Edison, taken it apart and put it back together. The spring has been pulled and re-greased, gear train cleaned and lubricated, motor re-belted, reproducer rebuilt, and more.
Absolutely gorgeous cabinet. Includes five nice cylinders and replica 14" brass bell horn.
