Vintage Electric Telephone Antique - £2250

12

condition: excellent
delivery available
make/manufacturer: Vintage
model name/number: Electric Telephone Antique

This is one of the hardest to find shaped candlestick phones. It was manufactured as a prototype to sell to the Bell Telephone Company. The Bell Company turned down the opportunity. Because of this, instead of “Bell System” in the bell shaped logo, it is engraved “SPEAK CLOSE TO MOUTHPIECE”.
This was manufactured for use by the B & R Electric Company, Kansas City at the turn of the last century.
This is the way we received it many years ago. It has only the top of the original bell box attached to the base of the phone.
