Vintage OAK RINGER BOX for CANDLESTICK TELEPHONE! Pat. 1894! 48A! RINGER WORKS!

This early RINGER BOX for a CANDLESTICK TELEPHONE carries a Patent Date of July 17, 1894. Near the Patent Date is "48A", which might be the model number. All this information is found on the metal plate shown in the next to last picture.

The RINGER rings properly when cranked and the Box appears to be very clean. There is a small diagram (see pictures 3 & 4) on the inside of the cover that is titled 'MAGNETO DESK SET'. Also found on the inside of the cover (see picture 5) is a small sticker that shows that a workman inspected the Ringer on 6/9/1942.

The Ringer Box measures 9 1/2" x 8 1/2" x5 1/4".
