Comments

Very rare, c. 1900.

 

When I acquired this candlestick I was unsure if the decal across the faceplate of the transmitter was original to the telephone or not.  And then I came across the original ad from an 1903 Telephone Magazine.  Take a look at the picture and you will see that this was a factory decal attached to some Swedish-American telephone transmitters, including this potbelly.  Rare, original glass "Whispering Mouthpiece" and a marked Swedish-American outside terminal receiver. This potbelly is in outstanding original condition.
