About

Spectacular Allen-Hussey Co. "bee hive" potbelly desk set with watchcase receiver. One of the rarest telephones in the collection. The original ad is from the June 1899 "Telephone Magazine", and I had the ad in my file for years until finally locating and acquiring the telephone. Never seen another in all the years of collecting. It is in remarkable condition including its original nickel. One of my favorite telephones.
