ANTIQUE: EARLY 5 CYLINDER PHONOGRAPH UNMARKED – Brass Top – Piece was found attached as seen in photo and WAS TREADLE POWERED at the time of discovery. You are getting an antique unmarked early 5 cylinder phonograph (not complete as I understand) – that was treadle powered from the late 1800’s. Termites destroyed the table top that the phonograph was sitting on (see photos – showing the wood table top that was there before it had to be removed) – actual photos. It was part of a huge antique find recently that was caught up in legalities between two deceased antique collectors. Please look over all the photos as they are part of the description. The pieces are untampered with and just the way we found them. NOTE: This paragraph may have nothing to do with this item: This is one of the early dictating machines/phonographs of the 1870’s – 1890’s. Not sure what company or person was behind this one since it is unmarked… Edison, Bell, Tainter, Bell? The dictating machines of this time period used tin and wax over the cylinders. Some were also known as shavers, Dictaphones, or Graphophones. Tainter was the first, I believe, to put the phonograph on a sewing machine base and use the treadle to power the phonograph cylinder. This listing is for the top unit only – not the treadle base / sewing machine base that you see in the photos. You will get the item just as you see it in the photo. >the phonograph 18-1/2″W x 8-1/2″D x 9-1/2H (brass metal). The base with treadle is NOT included. Table top is NOT included.
