*Very NICE!*

Up for auction is this VERY RARE 1916 (+-) Thomas A Edison Disc crank / wind-up Phonograph Model B-19 SM--10250 in Great Condition as pictured. Action is very smooth and everything works GREAT. It is amazing how good the sound quality is without any electrical components or circuits. This Phonograph is 19 ¼"W (22 5/8"W including crank) x 20 ¼"H x 21 ¼"D. As can be seen in the photos, t is some damage to the removable front grill. T are some letters & numbers stamped / etched on the base of the interior of the cabinet behind the removable front grill. The Edison Record pictured is for reference only and is not included.

We've had this for a number of years now in our PET-FREE / SMOKE-FREE home, however we do not know the entire history of this machine and tfore cannot guarantee this has always been the case.

*More Info on this Edison B-19 "Chalet"*

When Edison introduced the Diamond Disc Phonographs (officially called the New Edison Phonograph), he included table model phonographs. Unfortunately, the earlier table top phonographs were unsatisfactory due to certain design features such as the belt driven motor. Edison then introduced a new table model phonograph called the B-19 Chalet which used the same wind-up motor as the small upright models. This new model gave the performance expected of an Edison product. As a cost cutting measure, the cabinet of the Chalet was made of Gumwood, stained in a natural color ( this item ), or to simulate mahogany. This was Edison's only Gumwood phonograph.

For some reason, however, these improved table models are scarce today, perhaps because Edison instructed his dealers to discourage sales of this model in favor of the more profitable larger phonographs. When new, the B-19 sold for $95.00. This m odel was discontinued in December of 1923.
