Below is some information I found about these machines. Introduced in 1912, the A250 (later B250) was one of the first of Edison’s entries into the disc machine market. Most examples were fitted with a double spring motor. The cabinet was based on Edison’s Amberola I cylinder machine, but although it shares many design elements, it is not identical and an Amberola I mechanism cannot be swapped into the cabinet. The 250 nomenclature refered to its original price in dollars, a naming practice favored by Edison with many of his models. Available in oak or mahogany, the A250 and B250 enjoyed only a modest success, and was phased out around 1915. As with most Edison premium machines, the hardware was gold plated. This one in mahogany. About 10,000 of these were made. The item “Antique Edison A250 Diamond Disc Phonograph Record Player Sounds Great” is in sale since Saturday, February 24, 2018.
