Candlestick Phone Telephone Western Electric Works Working Railroad For Sale
Very nice, working Western Electric candlestick telephone. It rings when a call comes in and sounds good to use. Of course, it has no dial, so you can not make outgoing calls using this phone. This phone has a unique feature, the perch is stamped SP-R, which may indicate that it was intended for railroad use. This is an earlier style perch as well. The transmitter is also different, you'll notice where it is stamped T-12. Also please note the abundance of patent dates and markings all over the phone and receiver. The patent dates on the base stop in 1904, unlike the newer Western Electric candlestick phones that have patent dates in 1915. It features the hard-to-find receiver cap with Western Electric on it. It also features a very nice transmitter badge that says Western Electric. Original bakelite mouthpiece. The phone has an original handset cord in nice shape and an older rubber cord going from the phone to the subset. The ringer box is probably from around 1910 or even earlier. It only contains the bells. The electronic components are in the small black box with the modern phone plug coming out of it. The base was recovered with woven brown felt, it's actually heavy-duty pool table felt that is very similar to what the bases of these phones had on them originally. The original transmitter paint is in amazing condition, as you can see by the shine in the photos. The base and shaft of the phone were repainted. Ibelieve that things should sell for what they're worth, which is why I start things with an insanely low $2 offer. Clearly it will sell for market value, but there isn't any point to putting high prices on things. What has always made fun is the idea that you will get a bargain on something you crave, not pay absurd retail prices for things. Plan on about $14 shipping anywhere in the lower 48 US states. Thank you for looking and offerding!
