The Kellogg Switchboard and Supply Company was founded in 1897 by Milo G. Kellogg after Alexander Graham Bell's telephone patents expired in 1893 and 1894. Primarily a manufacturer of equipment for Kellogg was known for its superior switchboard technology and beautifully designedArt Decophones of the1930sand '40s. The company competed withWestern Electricand the Bell System before being absorbed into ITT in 1951.
Like Bell, Kellogg was a voracious inventor, with about 150 patents to his name (125 of them were granted on October 17, 1899). His company ’s first magneto-powered phone was awood, wall-mounted two-boxer, whose pressed-steel arm was designed to position the phone’s transmitter at mouth height. By the early1900s, oak Kellogg phones were being integrated into matchingtablesso the devices would literally become a part of a home’s furnishings. (From collectors weekly)
I suspect this was manufactured around 1901, but there are no dates to be found on the device. Four dry cells. About 18" high, 7" wide and deep.
Wood is immaculate in condition.
