Antique Edison A250 Diamond Disc Phonograph Record Player Sounds Great in Lockport

Beautiful Edison in working condition. Comes with everything shown in pictures from 02/17/2018. Measures 21" wide, 22 1/2" deep, and 51" tall. This can be picked up in Shorewood IL. 60404, Just west of Joliet, or buyer must pay for freight charges. Below is some information I found about these machines.
Introduced in 1912, the A250 (later B250) was one of the first of Edison's entries into the disc machine market. Most examples were fitted with a double spring motor. The cabinet was based on Edison's Amberola I cylinder machine, but although it shares many design elements, it is not identical and an Amberola I mechanism cannot be swapped into the cabinet.

The 250 nomenclature refered to its original price in dollars, a naming practice favored by Edison with many of his models.

Available in oak or mahogany, the A250 and B250 enjoyed only a modest success, and was phased out around 1915. As with most Edison premium machines, the hardware was gold plated. Victrola Talking Radio

The A250 cost $250 new in 1912. This one in mahogany . About 10,000 of these were made.
