Here we have, a very nice, early telephone. It is a French phone, and dates to somewhere around 1910-20 or so. The piece was made by Thomson-Houston Co., which started business in 1883, and later did business with Edison, somewhere in the 1890's. This looks to be a direct line phone, with no dials or anything to go anywhere else but to another phone. It has a tag on the case which reads Thomson-Houston, Constructeur-Paris, and the back of the ear piece is marked, Companie Des Telephones Thomson-HoustonB=S G D G, and No. F 65772. The case and phone are in great condition, with the original cord, and ear piece, and all the works. The case measures 7 3/8"x 6 1/2" not including the bells, and hanger. The ear piece or receiver measures 9" long with the hanger and is 2 5/8" wide at the ear piece. The other end is open with no cover at all, which is kind of cone shaped, like an old hearing piece that you talked into. Looks to be complete, but this is the first phone that I have seen like this. You collectors should know. Great piece just to hand up and talk about.
