$3,750.00

No Sales Tax If Shipped Outside North Carolina

1910 Edison Home “D” cylinder phonograph in a rare, special order mahogany cabinet. The phonograph features factory combination gearing, an Edison “K” reproducer and an Edison No. 10 Cygnet horn.

The quality of this offering is unmatched.

Condition is excellent, close to mint.  Mahogany cabinet retains its original finish, and it’s still lustrous, with no crazing on either the base or the lid. As you can see in the photographs, the wood’s tone is still a rich, radiant dark maroon; it has not gone brown or black. The cabinet decal is original, and it’s pristine. No scarring, no touch-ups.

Wood joints are secure, and the wood panels are essentially perfect. No damage, no repairs, no restoration. A remarkable survivor — all the more so if you’ve seen other examples of the mahogany Home to which you can compare it.

Bedplate decorations and pinstriping are factory original and close to 100%. Nickel plating on the mandrel and small parts still gleams, and the mechanism is in excellent working order. Machine runs great and plays multiple cylinders (2-minute or 4-minute) without the need for re-winding.

The two-piece Cygnet horn is also original, and its enameled surface is about as good as you’ll find anywhere. The horn’s decals are original and nearly perfect.

Horn crane is original, with minimal nickel loss, most evident on the upper rod. Support bracket is original, with pristine original enamel.

The 2/4 minute “K” reproducer is original and in excellent condition; it sounds great too.

The horn crane’s hanger nut and spring are replacements, as are the rubber furniture protectors on the underside of the phonograph’s base. The phonograph and horn are otherwise original and in remarkable condition.

The machine plays both 2 and 4 minute cylinders, wax or celluloid.
