About

This is one of my favorite upright telephone designs. It is unique, smaller and thinner than most candlesticks, and it has a beautiful, ornate Ericsson transmitter that is marked in the front. The switch hook has the signature "E" in the end loop and the receiver is a marked L. M. Ericsson outside terminal receiver. The scan is from an original ad in the June, 1912 Telephony Magazine.
