GENUINE ORIGINAL AMERICAN BELL 50AL CANDLESTICK TELEPHONE
- Product Code: 2016candle
- Availability: SOLD
A late 1920’s to early
1930’s original Candlestick Desk Telephone from the USA
This telephone has been
carefully restored in Denver, Colorado several years ago and is now ready to
find a new home.
It is in full working
order, ready to simply plug in and use. The dial is especially charming as it
produces a “clickety clack” sound whilst dialling, sought after by collectors
in the USA.
The telephone was
originally used with a heavy, cumbersome and somewhat ugly steel bell box. This has now been omitted thanks to the use
of modern technology. In order to dispense with the ugly bell box, the restorer
fitted an internal network with an electronic sounder. This provides good clear
speech and a pleasant sounding “warble” on incoming calls.
A new felt base has been
fitted to protect the furniture it sits on. It has a 7 foot line cord complete
with UK adaptor, ready to plug in and use.
This delightful telephone
is ready to make and receive calls. It is covered by a full 2 year
warranty. Please note that it is “pulse
dialling”, fully supported by BT and other networks, however not all, so please
check that your line provider will support legacy telephones (pulse/loop
disconnect) before purchase.
