Find out more about the Edison GEM
The "Gem" was Edison's most diminutive model, and everything about it is a delight! Start with the oak cabinet with original banner decal. It's compact, doesn't take up much room --perfect for today's life style -- irony intended!
Under the sweet-looking cover is the machine itself --
unpretentious? Yes! But also endearingly simple. Original black enamel
and gold decoration.
In 1907 Edison introduced a series of polygonal "flower" horns matched to each model in his roster. This original Gem flower horn with original paint and decals was available as an upgrade to Gems that had previously been equipped with rather small horns. The size of this horn assures loud and clear reproduction, despite the fact that it fits coziliy into a compact space.
Original decal on the horn. NO DENTS, CREASES OR DINGS!
Original patent notice on the horn.
