About

Fantastic No. 9 long distance desk telephone from Western Electric.  The base is spun brass over heavy cast iron and a solid brass handle.  High resistance White Solid Back 7 digit beveled edge transmitter and a code No. 101 long pole receiver.  This is the last model made by Western Electric with a potbelly shaft. I think this is one of the most perfect desk set designs ever made.
