Antique North Electric Company Wall Mount Crank Wood Telephone. For sale is an antique North Electric Company wooden wall telephone. It is an iconic early 1900s crank telephone that was a very important part of early modern life. This one would be good as a nice display wall piece or there are some companies that will modernize the internal parts to use it today.Please check pics and read full description below to get a better look at its condition. It is in solid overall condition for its age. Most notable exception is the crack at the top of the backboard and metal strap. The internal cloth wiring is aged but looks ok. Some of the back board wires are cut near the hook switch.
The magneto cranks but the tension is not solid through the turn. Not sure if this is normal. Handle appears to have some bend to it. Have not tested the magneto, receiver or bells. Mostly minor wear on the bakelite parts with no outright chips.
