Rare Wall Telephone
This phone has so much detail! It is made of tinplate, soft metal and pot metal! You can see the black speaker is at the top and under that a large bell which when you use the crank on the right side, makes the gong on the side hit the bell. (this one does not work, but if you want, I could see if someone could get it to operate). On the other side of the phone is a hook where the receiver hangs.The box like piece is where one could write messages down. It has raised designs of scroll work throughout the piece. It is German but am not sure of the maker.
Measurements: Hangs down 2-5/8" x 1-1/2"w
Circa: Late 19th century-1910
