This version of the Edison Standard Phonograph, the so-called "New Style" case of 1901, date to 1901-1905. The little green oak case with colorful gold banner decal makes it especially appealing to modern collectors.
The cabinet on this example is very nice original finish, original decal.
I have totally gone through the mechanics of this machine, taken it apart and put it back together. Everything has been cleaned and lubricated, governor shaft polished, spring pulled and re-greased, idler wheel freed up, mandrel re-belted, etc. The reproducer has also been rebuilt for maximum sound. This Edison is now running as nice as can be.
The sold brass horn is approximately 24 inches long with an 11 1/2 inch bell. It is in better than average condition with only mild distress commensurate with age, no large dents or dings.
The floor craning and all brass horn would be typical of a machine of this vintage (petaled horns didn't become popular until a few years later). A floor crane is the best way to support a horn on this kind of machine, but as it turns out very few floor cranes survived and remaining examples are quite scarce.
Includes five nice Edison cylinder records.
