This phonograph has been in my husband's family since it was purchased NEW by my husband's Great-Grandmother back around 1916 or so. The cabinet is gorgeous with just a couple of small items to mention. T are 2 ring marks on the top of the cabinet. Also the right front leg has a bit of a stress fracture (It is so minor but I am mentioning it so that the buyer has the complete details.) but is otherwise intact. The cabinet's label is still attached inside the cabinet - see the attached picture. It reads: EDISON No. 20 Cabinet Factory ____ 899.

This item has been carefully stored away. We took it out of storage just this past Sunday, wound the arm and it started right up! It sounds just beautiful too! Included in this auction is also an original jar of Edison grease with a bit of grease still in it! T are a total of 9 Early Diamond Disc Records also that I am including!

I have listed several pictures to show how gorgeous this item is. I tried to show all of the parts and how nice they all are. Please note the record rack in the bottom cabinet section, the original metal Edison tag attached in the top portion of the cabinet, the beautiful finish on the cabinet, etc. If you require additional pictures or information in regards to this phonograph then please e-mail me and I will do my best to accommodate your request(s).
