An Early Victorian Telephone
This telephone is a carved piece of wood which has a piece at the top for hanging it on a wall. All of the metal attachments are the essential parts in having a working phone. On the very front is a bell at the top, to the left side is a piece which has a cord and a hook to hang on the receiver. (ear phone to listen). On the right side is the crank that turns to get the operator on line. Last, is the speaker which hangs below the bell that one talks into. A great piece for the 19th Century dolls' house.
