About

This is another spectacular, beautiful telephone and may be the only one known to exist as well. It is a Phoenix rope shaft desk set from the earliest days of manufacturing Phoenix upright telephones. Marked transmitter with the "TradeMark" logo and outside terminal long pole receiver.  See the scan from an original Phoenix catalog showing this telephone.  The ornate bottom base is not original to the telephone but closely resembles the original. The rope shaft, box and all other parts are original.
