This is a pale yellow Model 500 telephone made by Western Electric and distributed by Bell Systems starting in 1949. They were the most common household telephone at the time, some models were made to hang on the wall. The model evolved somewhat over time, I believe this is a 70's model based on the style of the dial. The cord is not original, the original would have also been pale yellow. Although it is not uncommon today to see two toned models, they were not originally distributed that way.
