This wonderful Western Electric Dial Candlestick Telephone that has been cleaned, adjusted, and guaranteed to work. To assure top quality this unique Art Deco style candlestick has been disassembled, thoroughly tested, cleaned and reassembled and painted with black lacquer. It was made in the 1920s for the Bell System. A T1 capsule has been added to the transmitter for better clarity, it has the early 706A type receiver which is correct for this phone. I have been very carful to maintain everything as original as possible except for the new brown cloth cords and suede leather base cover this phone is original and in very good shape. The dial is a rare notchless number 2 AE and has been cleaned and oiled so it turns smoothly. The dial has that great clickity-clack sound you can only get form these old dials. This is dial has alphanumeric on the notchless dial face plate are very clear. These notchless faceplates in this good of condition are very hard to find. This Western Electric dial candlestick is marked on base, on the right side, with the following patent dates: PAT IN U.S.A. JAN 26 15 JAN 1 18 MAY 7 18 The receiver is in good shape, it is the 706A style receiver which came with dial candlesticks and provides good sound quality. The transmitter face reads: PROPERTY OFAMERICAN TEL AND TEL CO.323PAT USA JAN 14 1913 The brass number card holder on the dial reads:645This may mean that the phone was used in a rural area and only required 3 digits to be dialed. Any other calls were handled by operators to get from one exchange to another.Around the mouthpiece there is a Western Electric 128-B brass card holder that reads:PLEASEANSWERPROMPLYThe card holder is marked:WESTERN ELECTRICMADE IN U.S.A. 128-BThe mouthpiece has a *star* in the center.The cloth cords are just like the originals except for the line cord with the plug to work on your home wall telephone jack.

This is a working candlestick that is ready to plug in. As mentioned before, this phone is fully functional and ready to use. Just plug it into any standard modular jack. To make a call, pick up the receiver, dial the number, and talk. To receive a call, pick up the receiver after hearing the old bell ring, and talk. I have worked for the telephone company for 38 years and enjoyed restoring old phones for almost that long. As I have said several times this phone is fully guaranteed.This phone is NOT A REPRODUCTION! It is the real thing. The only new part is the nice brown cloth cords. These new cords are made on the same type of braiding machine that produced original cords. I think it is great that this phone was made at the dawn of dial telephone service and is still able to operate and provide great telephone service today. It is not just a conversation piece but a telephone that has been around for going on for 90 years and still works. How many phones have you bought and thrown away because they failed and were not worth trying to fix? The metal 634A subset (black box) is also original. It contains the ringer and a101A network which provides the best quality transmission and voice quality available inthis early telephone equipment. The subset can be placed on the wall, or under the desk, table, or anything else that the phone sits on. It has an extra long line cords between the subset and the wall jack as well as between the subset and the candlestick. The "Ringer," located in the Type 634A Subscriber Set, was cleaned and adjusted. The bells are brass and look and sound great. When it rings the sound made is that which only old brass bells can make. This is a superior telephone able to provide many years of excellent service.
