Comments

Extremely rare, c. 1898.

 

Fantastic Shaver, Style G Dolphin Base Desk Instrument. Shaver Style G desk sets were wired for 2 or more connections, up to 50, and adapted for general inter-communication between connected stations using a push button buzzer call (you can see the buzzer on the back of the phone in one of the pitcures). Please see the scan of an original 1899 Public Telephone Company catalog listing the Shaver Style G Desk Instrument for $10.00. Very unique and extremely rare telephone.
