The Gerson Elec. Mfg Co was in business in Phila, for ~ 1894 - 1897. There are several ads showing several different style phones they sold, including a very unusual candlestick, but this is the ONLY know example of an original GERSON phone. Note company name embossed in wood on the front in 2 places.
