This is a early 1900's Western Electric candlestick telephone. It does function on today's phone line. The bell box Western Electric too, 1914.
The "coin box"was a idea of mine. It has an old pay phone coin collector slot head. The box was a modern bank that had a larger slot cut into it to fit the coin collector. Box was painted with "wrinkle finish" black paint to make look old. Just sits on top of bell box for looks. "Honor system" style.
