American Bell Telephone Walnut Magneto 3-box Blake Telephone, Circa 1894 For Sale

American Bell Telephone Walnut Magneto 3-box Blake Telephone, Circa 1894

Very rare, Circa 1894 American Bell Telephone Walnut 3-Box Blake Magneto Telephone. This is the
"Gold Standard" model that all others strive to replicate. This is the real deal with original Walnut backboard, Type 21A Top Box and Battery Box cover. The Blake Transmitter is a modern replica made by Selmer Lowe in 2008. It is duplicated in all details, down to the most minute detail. All lettering is done via Laser engraving with all patent information accurate, as well as the Serial Number itself. No effort has been spared to make this transmitter a perfect copy of the rare original. The Cast battery tray is a modern casting off an original one. The Receiver cord is a modern replacement of the Rattlesnake original.
Over the years this phone was in service it went through countless changes in the field, each leaving it's own trail of changes. I disassembled this phone and repaired these countless modifications such that presently it displays exactly how it would have appeared when it was originally put into service. I likely have over 100 hours into this restoration, but I believe this attention to detail is required when bringing a phone like this back to it's original condition. I rewired it with period waxed Barber-pole Annunciator wire colored in the traditional Blue-White Spiral pattern. The phone is well marked throughout: Stamped door to Top Box, side stamped Type 2, 22-A magneto Spacer plate, Patented hinges, Switch Hook has proper Patent dates, Type 2 Top Box, modified by Western Electric into a Type 21-A, which is stamped inside the door. Even the Blake Wiring Diagram is intact inside the Door. The long Pole Receiver is an appropriate period piece with no cracks or chips; just normal age wear blemishes. The bells do ring loud when the magneto is cranked vigorously. No effort has been spared in restoring this gem. There is a modest Reserve.
