Category - Early edison phonographs
An outstanding example of the first model Edison “Standard” Phonograph, with a Polyphone Attachment and the correct crank. The Polyphone was an attempt to play brown wax cylinders with greater volume, and these attachments are rare today. This machine left the factory about February 1901. This particular machine was formerly in the Art Wilmoth collection and featured in George Frow and Al Sefl’s book “Edison Cylinder Phonographs 1877-1929.
