1902 International tapered shaft


Excellent, original condition.


Extremely rare. c.1902


Extremely rare International tapered shaft desk set with marked transmitter.  This candlestick is shorter than most and it has a unique throat up near the transmitter.  It also has a Holtzer-Cabot outside terminal receiver. Please see the original January 1903 ad from Telephone Magazine that shows this telephone and makes the claim that, "International Telephones stand unequalled, never fall down".
