Category - The edison amberola line
The Amberola 1A was Edison’s first Phonograph that hid the horn within the cabinet, like Victor’s Victrola. Like the Victrola, it was expensive: $200.00. This is the only Amberola model capable of playing both 2 and 4 minute cylinders, and this example is equipped with the rare and desirable Model “M” reproducer. An all-original example of this historic and rare Edison Phonograph. This example of the earliest Amberola is interesting in that it is a late production (early 1910) Weber-style cabinet, but retains the earlier lyre grille. It also features a maroon bedplate: a color typically offered only with mahogany cabinets. The serial numbers of the mechanism and cabinet are matching.
