About

This is an extrordinary & rare telephone. It is a Garl Electric Company 8 point inter-communicating desk set.  This system accommodates connections between any two telephones and any numbers of pairs of telephones on the same system and allows them to converse simultaneously without interference.  The transmitter is a granular carbon solid back, and the receiver is a unique double pole outside terminal receiver.  All contacts and springs are made of German silver.  Please see the scan of an original ad for this exact telephone from a publication back in 1900. Original coil and wires are in the base, the rattlesnake line cord and the wall mounted terminal block is there (just like in the ad).
