Another in my collection;
Edison Bell indestructible brown ... Watermelon on a vine.

I believe these were made for Edison bell by the Lambert Co. Same construction as the lamberts and they come in pink, black, and brown.
I believe the brown is the hardest to find.

Beautiful! I must admit that I have never seen a brown one before - I wonder whether this may be the "natural" color of the celluloid - it would not have made much sense imitating brown wax while around the same time, the big manufacturers changed to black. At least this is finally a brown cylinder not being endangered of growing mold.

Very nice. Nice to see too. I have never seen any Edison Bell cylinders and this one is darn special I think. I do love Edison Bell as my first machine (disc) was/is an Edison Bell. A nice little machine too. Light as a feather about the size of my HMV 145. Lighter and more style too!

I agree with the OP. It is certainly a hard to find one..

There is certainly a Lambert connection to this cylinder...No question...
