About

This is a very special telephone. I have no ads or catalog pictures, but all of the original parts are still on this telephone and I have no doubt that it is completely genuine. The transmitter says “The General Telephone Co., Pat’d July 6, 1897”. Fantastic wooden transmitter box with a single button on the side, sitting on a nickel plated potbelly base.  Complete with watchcase receiver. One of my favorite telephones and extremely rare.
