Western Electric Dial Candlestick Telephones were made of solid brass and painted black. Only very special people were allowed to have a polished brass one. While doing research for the UNTOUCHABLE production and series I discovered a picture of Al Capone talking on a polished brass dial candlestick.I can imagine the fate of a telephone representative telling Al he could not have one. My company CHICAGO OLD TELEPHONE CO supplied over 60 telephones for the productions including a beautiful solid brass one for ALS scenes. 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.
Solid brass rare dial fingerwheel has a cut our to allow easy cleaning. At this early time TB was feared so cleaning the dial surface was thought necessary. It was later determined that the virus was short lived.
