1920s Brass TELEPHONE - Western Electric - Made Into Lamp
- Source: eBay
Listed is an antique (1920s) stand up brass telephone that someone made into a lamp. I assume it is a Western Electric because I once saw one exactly like it. It has several patent dates on it beginning with January 26, 1915 and ending with September 21, 1920. It is also marked "50AL". Its condition as a telephone or a lamp is probably poor. I am sure it will not work as a telephone, and I did not plug it in to see if it works as a lamp because it is so old and has not been used for about 50 years. The dial turns and does work. It is somewhat tarnished and I cleaned as much dirt and filft from it as I could. I am selling it AS IS with no returns. Buyer pays $12.90 shipping in the USA.
