    My wife and sister-in-law found this today in their uncle's attic in Cleveland, OH. any idea what model it is? Not sure if it is a Victrola or an Edison?

      looks like an edison diamond disc, need to see the inside ( turntable area) to tell for sure.

      I have to agree with bobby725. I had one 60 years ago like this with the record storage below and on the inside of the top lid was a sticker with the RCA Nipper the dog. The records in mine were a quarter of an inch thick. There was a crank handle on the right side to wind it up.

      I was also wondering if there was any imprint on it anywhere. Could even be underneath it, possibly. It's a real beauty!

      I don't think it's an Edison or Victor. Is there any writing on the underside of the lid? Is there a name plate around the turntable? The motor itself could also have identifying information. It looks like it could be a Starr.

      The sound boxes usually have information written on them as well.

      Excellent information, I am learning every minute Phonoboy.

      This person has not replied, but if they are watching, my diamond disc has a brass plate on the left side under the lid that says "Edison" and numbers. also there is a lever that lifts, moves, and lowers the stylus. The diamond disc will only play the thick Edison records correctly, others are off speed. Please respond and show us the inside.

      Thanks my wife did not take any photos of the inside before she left. She thought she saw the Edison plate as you described. Thanks all for the help
