About

Magnavox anti-noise desk stand. Not your average candlestick, but a very neat alternative to the typical candlestick of that time period. Caller would put receivers over each ear and talk into transmitter. Their voice would vibrate a diaphragm in the transmitter. Most background noise would not be picked up in this directional transmitter. Very interesting concept for that time period from a manufacturer we all know today. Marked on base and transmitter/receiver. If you are looking for an unusual telephone design from a hundred years ago, this is it!
