Check out this early telephone converted to a lamp. This brass candlestick phone is marked Western Electric and is patented Jan. 26, 1915. These phones were used long before the rotary dial. You had to contact the operator in order to put your call through. Whoever converted the phone into a lamp was a very clever person. In order to turn on the lamp, you take the receiver off the cradle or arm. To turn it off, you place the receiver back into the cradle. All the wiring is in excellent working condition. The lamp comes with an off white, light beige colored shade. The height of the lamp from the phone base to the top of the socket is 12”. The brass and all parts of the lamp are in excellent condition. 21"h X 12"w X 12"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1915.
