This is an Amberola model V with the very low serial number 386, and in the rare mahogany cabinet. It was made in 1913 and is one of Edison's first table top internal horn machines. The condition, both visually and functionally, is excellent. It plays the Edison Blue Amberol cylinder 2098, released in 1913:

"Every little movement" from the musical comedy "Madame Sherry" by Karl Hoschna and Otto Harbach (1910)
with Marie Narelle as Lulu and Frederic H. Potter as Leonard

No longer does the lithesome miss, cavort in catchy waltz
The twostep and the ragtime bliss, she found alas was false
The schottische and the polka swing, she's laid them all away
Aesthetic dancing is the thing that holds the "floor" today Ah!

Ev'ry little movement has a meaning all its own,
Ev'ry tho't and feeling by some posture can be shown,
And ev'ry love tho't that comes a stealing
O'er your being must be revealing,
All its sweetness in some appealing
Little gesture all all its own

It makes no diff'rence fat or slim, you must get in the game
While some one plays a Turkish hymn, just let your soul inflame.
Your arms and legs grow eloquent, and inner tho'ts sublime
Express themselves with temp'rament while you are keeping time Ah!
