Here is an original colored lithograph, otherwise known as a "chromolithograph", of Thomas Edison "making a phonograph". It dates from 1901 and has a beautiful gilt wood frame from the period; cannot guarantee that it's the original frame, but certainly from that time period. By the beginning of the 20th century Thomas Edison had become a household name as many were being lighted by his lightbulb, and music was heard from his phonographs. This particular lithograph measures 7 7/8" by 9 7/8" and is in good condition, although there is a very small hole at the bottom of the print which is clearly indicated in the photo that I've taken. I chose not to touch it since these prints sometimes are very fragile and damage easily. Even with this imperfection this chromolithograph is a rare find and a wonderful piece of American history!
