1911 Edison Standard Phonograph W/cygnet Horn * 2 & 4 Minute Gearing * Gorgeous For Sale

1911 Edison Standard Phonograph W/cygnet Horn * 2 & 4 Minute Gearing * Gorgeous


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an outstanding assortment of musical, electrical and mechanical antiques, and I suspect that there will be at least something of interest to almost everyone.Here's a museum quality Edison Standard Phonograph with a No. 10 Cygnet horn, 2 & 4 minute gearing (it plays all cylinders) and a large diaphragm "N" reproducer. If you've been searching for an Edison cylinder phonograph that's beautiful enough to take center stage in your living room and robust enough to be a reliable "daily player," this machine is worth considering.As you can see in the photographs, the condition of the phonograph is exquisite. The black japanned finish on the bedplate is still glossy and beautiful. The Edison signature on the vertical plane of the upper casting is crisp and clear. The decorative color pin-striping on both the upper and lower castings is factory original and close to perfect, with the only significant wear evident in the area of the 2-4 minute indicia. The plated parts still gleam; the mandrel is still perfectly true; and there's only minimal tarnish and oxidation on the cabinet hardware. The phonograph looks beautiful under the bedplate, too. Virtually no gear wear, no rust, no worn or damaged parts. Both the upper and lower belt pulleys are as clean a whistle, and the belt tensioner is working properly.The cabinet is in superb condition, with a silky smooth factory finish and an original cabinet decal that's almost perfect. There's no scarring and there are no damaged letters. The oak is excellent, structurally and cosmetically. The lid is excellent. There's no peeling veneer, no worn out shellac, no seams coming unglued. The Cygnet horn, like the rest of the phonograph, is in excellent condition, with no dents and no damage. The bell and throat latch together snugly, and they stay snugly latched when the horn is hanging. I was told when I purchased the horn that it may have been repainted many years ago, but the paint on it certainly looks original to me, and the decals likewise look original (and are in excellent condition.) The horn crane is a replica, but it's identical to the original, except that there is no wear or damage to the nickel-plating, which stands out in stunning contrast to the deep black paint on the horn. The crane support is original, and the paint on the support is original and in excellent condition.
The "N" reproducer is one of the best sapphire stylus reproducers that Edison ever made, sonically the equivalent of the "O" but much less fussy. The pot metal upper housing on this "N" has been replaced with one made out of nickel-plated brass, but it's a beautifully machined replacement, and unlike the easily damaged pot metaloriginal, it will last your lifetime and the lifetime of your descendants.Overall, an extraordinary phonograph in every respect, and it plays great at both speeds. Perhaps even more important, though, it sounds great at both speeds. It is quite likely the best sounding Edison Standard I've ever heard.If you've been patiently offering your time, waiting for a beautiful, reliable Edison cylinder phonograph to come along, you may have just found it.I'll include an Edison Amberol record (4-minute) and an Edison Gold Moulded record (2-minute) so that you can enjoy the phonograph as soon as it arrives. And if you're not already familiar with how to operate an early cylinder phonograph, don't worry. I'll provide you with simple, easy to understand set-up instructions. If you're offerding from overseas, please contact me in advance for a shipping quote so that I can confirm my ability to export the phonograph to your country. The machine and the horn will be packed separately, but they may be still be too large to ship to certain countries in Europe and Asia. That's about it. I will carefully prep everything for shipping and pack everything carefully and properly. I've been shipping fragile antique phonographs and wireless sets for years, and I know how to get them to you safely. Buyer prepays and includes shipping. Paypal okay.
