1905 Edison Standard Phonograph
This phonograph was completely restored. Much of the paint on the base had chipped away and there was a lot of rust. The base was stripped and repainted. A new belt was installed and the motor was cleaned and lubricated. Reproduction decals were added and the cabinet was polished.
