The Edison Triumph Phonograph was the top-of-the line in the regular series of Edison cylinder phonographs and found its way into the wealthier of American homes. Needless to say, it remains an elite phonograph in modern collections. Produced during the 1908-10 period, this phonograph incorporates 2 and 4 minute gearing factory-installed on the mandrel shaft. The cabinet is a deep, rich original oak with strong tiger striping, and the Edison script decal is in superb condition. The black enameling is excellent, the bedplate gold striping is in average condition; metal components very well preserved and with a fine original crank and motor. What really makes this phonograph a standout is the superb oak Cygnet horn. The horn is very tight, with no splitting or veneer loss. The deep, rich oak finish matches the phonograph and there are only a few microscopic dings to the wood. With decals on horn and wood-grain painted steel elbow. With a selection of records, Model H reproducer, and ready to take its place in your collection.
