Outstanding original condition.

Comments

Extremely rare, c. 1900-1910.

 

Extremely rare Wentworth & Blake straight shaft desk stand.  The only documentation found so far is a listing from the Boston City Directory in 1904 of the Wentworth & Blake Telephone Manufacturing Co. at 19 High Street.  Very unusual sloped switch hook and transmitter mount with a hole in it.  Outside terminal long pole receiver.  Fantastic original candlestick from 1900 - 1910.
