1906 Edison Standard Phonograph W/orig. Flower Horn * Exc. Cond. * 100% Original For Sale

1906 Edison Standard Phonograph W/orig. Flower Horn * Exc. Cond. * 100% Original

Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an outstanding assortment of antique radios and cylinder phonographs.Here's a gorgeous, all-original Edison Standard cylinder phonograph with an equally gorgeous (and also all-original) blue flower morning glory horn. As you can see in the photographs, the machine is in superb condition throughout. Black japanned finish on the bedplate is still glossy, and the Edison signature on the vertical plane of the upper casting is still crisp and clear. Original gold stenciling on the bedplate is better than 75% , and the nickel-plating on the small parts is excellent. The mandrel is true; the gear train is quiet (both above and below the bedplate) and the machine plays PERFECTLY.The cabinet is in excellent condition, with a silky smooth finish and an original Edison cabinet decal. There's some light oxidation on the handle and latching hardware, but much less than you typically see on these machines. All four original hard rubber feet are still intact on the underside of the base.The motor is clean and working perfectly, as is the governor assembly. When wound, the phonograph can make it easily through several cylinders, and speed doesn't waver as the cylinders play through.The reproducer is a 2-minute Model "C" with a good stylus. It sounds great. The phonograph is a wonderful "daily player." The blue flower horn is gorgeous, as you can see, and transforms the phonograph into a work of art. The horn was hand-painted more than a century ago, and its condition overall is excellent for an original flower horn, particularly a blue horn, which is not only scarcer than a red horn, but much harder to find in presentable condition. There are some dings here and there, as you would expect, but nothing significant, and the blue iridescent base paint, while it exhibit scratches on the exterior, is still mostly intact, a rarity given that these horns were painted with fruit dye on unprimed tin surfaces. The vast majority of surviving flower horns have hardly any paint left on them all; to find one this nice is unusual to say the least.
The crane is original, and it's in excellent condition, with minimal oxidation. Better yet, it's a desirable rear-mount crane, so the lower crane rod doesn't obstruct your view of the front of the cabinet.That's about it. I'll include a cylinder with it, so that you can enjoy the phonograph as soon as it arrives. And if you're not already familiar with how to set-up and operate an early cylinder phonograph, don't worry. I'll provide you with simple, easy to understand instructions. Due the size of the horn, the phonograph can not be shipped to all locations. OVERSEAS buyers: Please contact me in advance for a shipping quote and to confirm that I can ship the phonograph to your location. The horn will be shipped separately, of course, and necessary precautions will be taken to ensure that everything arrives safe and sound. I've been shipping fragile antique phonographs and wireless sets for years, and I know how to do it properly.
