ANTIQUE WESTERN ELECTRIC OAK WALL BOX TELEPHONE (INTACT)
Comments. Measuring 19" high, 8" wide/deep this is a Western Electric telephone which appears to be more than 100 years old. It has a solid oak case, hard vintage plastic handset and metal features. It has a crank handle on the side, metal bells in the front and the mouthpiece as well as the older hand set on the side have been updated as seen in our photo. The woods golden oak finish has wear, shade variations, and although it has darkened over the decades it still accentuates the woods grain. The case has fingered jointed corners, routed edges, a small platform in the front and mounting holes in the back. This item is in sturdy shape with normal use wear, finish/paint wear, soiling/stains and we are unsure if it is complete. It still has a pair of Burgess No.6 giant ignition dry cell batteries in the interior. This must be a company modification of the old version of the crank telephone such as" 2.0".

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
