Early Columbia Model “A” Cylinder Player



This exquisite, entirely authentic Columbia model “A” phonograph is in superb condition! It retains its original finish, along with the original black finish on the upper bedplate adorned with the original decals that still maintain their charm. Initially introduced as the “1897 model” in 1896, the model “A” was Columbia’s initial endeavor to provide a phonograph to the market at an affordable price of $25. The upper bedplate’s black finish was intricately embellished with floral and berry motifs, marking the first time Columbia had decorated a model in such a manner. This represents a splendid “Early” specimen of a unique machine crafted by Columbia. It boasts a striking appearance and functions smoothly, complete with a nickel horn. Should you have any inquiries regarding this or any other machine, please do not hesitate to ask!
