    This is a Edison Standard Phonograph playing cylinder records. The cylinders are made of wax. It has a Model C Reproducer. The piece has the lid and crank and 35 cylinder records. This was the stereo back in that period. I've had this over 20 years and it sounds and plays beautifully. The first patent on it is Dec. 4, 1889 and the last on it is Oct. 18, 1892. The serial number on it is s151144. Made in Orange. N.J.,USA.

      Very nice piece. I just picked up today 3 cylinders in the boxes. 2 blue and 1 black. It's nice to see what they would have played on.

      Have an Edison and a box of cylinders that belonged to my grandparents. Very nice.
    24. officialfuel officialfuel, 8 years ago
      Thank you Nova, after all these years it still plays! :-)
    25. walksoftly walksoftly, 8 years ago
      I found one very similar to this one yesterday, it belonged to an old relative who passed away years ago. My father had tucked it away for safe keeping, we also found a box with a full set of 24 cylinders last Sunday. I cranked up the player yesterday and it still runs, but I haven't put a cylinder on yet as I have yet to find the horn. It is a beautiful machine, not sure that I'm going to want to part with it.
    26. officialfuel officialfuel, 8 years ago
      You can still hear it without the horn.
    27. walksoftly walksoftly, 8 years ago
      Good to know officialfuel, but I'm going to keep looking for that horn. Dad didn't throw anything out, so I'm sure it's here somewhere, thanks.
    28. officialfuel officialfuel, 8 years ago
      I just meant till you found the horn, just to see if it worked properly and if you had some sound. Have a great day! :-)
    29. leighannrn leighannrn, 8 years ago
      You are so diversified in your collection. Just incredible all the different things you collect. Enjoy looking at everything!

      How much would the records alone be worth individually?
    74. officialfuel officialfuel, 5 years ago
      Thank you danielle2136 for stopping in and asking a questions. I've seen them anywhere from $5.00 -$35.00 depends on condition and if there in the cardboard sleeve. They're called wax cylinder records. They play for about two minutes. Thank you again for stopping in. Have a great day.
