Acquired this Swedish-American Telephone Co. watch fob. The fob is not common and even more so with the original box. The Swedish-American Telephone Co. founded in Chicago on Dec. 1899 and chose it's name as a marketing technique as their telephones were sold in the mid-West where a majority of customers were of Scaninavian descent. Swedish-American manufactured a wide range of telephone equipment until 1920 when they ceased business permanenty.

    Thank you Kevin, This is by far the best looking telephone fob I have. Let me know when you get your duplicate or when you lose your dollar in the mail.

    Kevin, you can mail your dollar to Swedish-American Telephone Manufacturing Co. located at 5237 Ravenswood Ave Chicago, ILL. No zip code in those days. Good luck
