I picked up this rotating calendar at a Seattle telephone show last month.
This calendar was more than likely a give away item by Automatic Electric Co. which was the manufacturing arm of GTE. The base is stamped Brown & Bigelow patent pending ST. PAUL, MINN. I later found out the calendar was Patented by Charles A Ward on July 16, 1929
and assigned to Brown & Bigelow. I added the patent page.

    I bought one from ebay, about a month ago and I love it. This one is a real beauty that you found. Goes well in front of your computer I imagine, that is where mine is ! Yours is older than mine which I date at 1960 or late 50's, they come in handy, I know. Beautiful piece. I love the patent and the research you did, really worth finding a piece like this !~Phil.

    I love it! I do have a pin very similar to this symbol AE. The symbol changed quite a bit over the years. Any symbol older than the one you show will be in the shape of a Strowger Dial (complete with finger holes).
