There were very few dial candlesticks produced compared to the earlier non dial types. In the early days multiple line telephones were not yet developed. Locations requiring more than one line were supplied with several telephones. Some types: COW BELLS, LIBERTY BELLS, SLEIGH BELLS, "T" BELLS, WOOD BELLS, GLASS BELLS and several sizes of round bells.
Large cow bells are very rare and collectable. They make a loud and very distinctive sound.
These are solid brass polished on professional machines to a mirror finish. This telephone and ringer would please a serious collector. DOUBLE BOXED IN NEW CARTONS AND INSURED.
