Edison Gem

"Gem" model A, B, 1899-1902. The earliest Gems were case-less and equipped with a metal drip pan underneath the motor to catch oil from the motor. The model A has a unique built-in reproducer which cannot be removed from the carriage. The early model A cost $7.50.

This second version of the Model A, shown here, has a different motor configuration, an endgate, and a special "Gem" reproducer. A simple case was provided in place of the drip pan. The improved model A cost $10.00, complete with a simple 10" cone horn. 

A common accessory was the minature "Morning Glory" horn, shown here. This horn provided for increased volume.
