Standard Talking Machine Co MODEL E Columbia Phonograph
- Source: eBay
Direct from Grandma's attic : This very early 1900's phonograph was recently cleaned of the attic dust ~ it now works beautifully! Columbia produced the piece for the Standard Talking Machine Company of Dearborn and Harrison Streets in Chicago. The maker's label on the side notes that this is Model E. The crank works smoothly and the turntable spins beautifully. T is a start-stop pin on the front left side of cabinet to start the spinning and to regulate the speed of spin. The front of the cabinet has 8 handsome wooden pillars at the sound opening. A small crack (about 1" is visible) to veneer top at back of the turntable. Green felt is a replacement. T is some paint loss on the arm bracket. Otherwise in beautiful condition. This model does NOT require a horn ~ the sound comes out nice and clear! The cabinet is approximately 12-1/4" square, allowing easy, space-saving placement on table tops.Need more scans? Just email ~ I will send them directly to you.
