Antique Edison cylinder style phonograph record player-local pickup Pennsylvania
Welcome to our listing and thanks for visiting. After viewing this item, please check our other listings. We hope you find something you like. Here is an antique Edison phonograph. We are not experts in phonographs and hope the photos will be of more benefit than our description. The phonograph has a wood base and a large top that can be removed by pushing in two small buttons one on each side. With the top on, the phonograph measures about sixteen & a half inches long, about twelve inches deep, and about fifteen and a half inches high. With the top removed, the actual phonograph is on top of a wood base. There is black metal base that covers the top of the base. This phonograph plays cylinder style records. On the black metal, it is marked Thomas A. Edison” and also “Trade” and “Mark” above and below the “Thomas A. Then there is a metal tag. This has Manufactured Under The Patents of Thomas A. Edison, at Orange, N. Then there are several patent dates, the latest of these is 1898. There is also the number “C4404″. The cabinet has a drawer in the front. Inside this drawer was a crank. We took the crank and wound up the motor several times. On the top there is a small lever. We turned this one way and the metal cylinder part near the center spun fast. Above this metal cylinder is a black metal bar that has a round silver-color part. We believe this holds a needle to play the record. Please view all the photographs above. We think the wood of the cabinet is oak and has a mostly light brown appearance, but also has a slight green tint. The finish seems to be original and in generally very good condition. There are four small holes on the front, to the one side of the drawer. Then there is a larger hole just below this spot. We are unsure if this is original or if someone did this later. The metal parts also seem to be original and in generally good condition. Some wear to the black metal top. Everything might benefit from a gentle cleaning, but still nice as it is. We lifted the phonograph out of the cabinet one time so that we could take a photograph of the motor. We believe this is all original as well. We hope that the photos will help those who are interested. We will do our best to answer any questions. We live about 25 miles west of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Have a nice day.
