    I purchased this telephone at a flea market along with a bell box. I would like to know more about this particular telephone. It still has the original cord.

      Apparently this is known to collectors as the "Kansas City" There is one very similar to yours (though someone has painted the nickle plated parts. Here is a link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stromberg-Carlson-Candlestick-Phone-Receives-Calls-0903A-/111580837454?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19fabc764e

      upstate, Thank you for the link. I really do not like that they painted the nickle-plated parts. Thanks for the "Kansas City" clue...never heard that.

      Vintage, you really do come up with "off the wall" stuff. Like your diversity!

      I enjoy my madness.. I work in mental health...
    5. antiquerose antiquerose, 6 years ago
      lol@vintagelamp......

      I heard the *collectors* are all suppose to have some form of Mental Health issues...
    6. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 6 years ago
      Yep, I don't know why they'd do that?! Yours is better!!!
    7. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 6 years ago
      I love the deco lamp in the background of the 3rd pic!
    8. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      antiquerose, Yes, but we enjoy it don't we???????

      upstate, I have the deco lamp posted. Take a look.

      Ah, you'se guys, or what ever ya'll say up there, that's why I call it CyberAsylum. Glad you're catching on, - - - finally!
    10. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      I NEVER say "you'se guys." Remember, I spent some years in GA! LOL!

      Not a Kansas model they was manufactured around 1900, your candlestick was produced from 1905 up until 1928. yours has the later bakelite type transmitter.
    12. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      Thanks ttomtucker. I guess that that is why I have it. I am drawn to items from the 1920s.
    13. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      So you're in mental health. Pitcher or receiver? LOL! You can buy the cloth covered wires ready to install. I used "House of Telephones" & was very happy with their products & friendly attitude. (Much better than my own!)
    14. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      Your attitude is fine! Thanks for the info on the wires! Pitcher and receiver...
    15. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Cind"B" sure doesn't share your opinion! Still trying to figure that out?
    16. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      Wondered why I haven't heard anything....
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Ck it out on her site. I'm still waiting for somebody to explain the tantrum & what triggered it? Wish somebody would explain it to me!
    18. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      ok...will look
    19. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      It's actually "CindB". In my opinion the "B' should be a "C". Have absolutely no idea what triggered the "C". Let me know! "I'm a bully"? Thought I got along with everybody real well. I call BS, BS when needed to be called BS. Strange that!
    20. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 6 years ago
      blunder, Which post are you speaking about? I couldn't find it.
    21. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 6 years ago
      Vintagelamp, my guess is, she was ashamed of her uncontrolled tantrum & deleted it! Good move! I will never clk on another item of her's again. I tried clk'n on her site & didn't get much positive response. I think they just went truly insane that day. It was incredible! A snake that had been stirred without knowing what stirred it. Best forgotten! If I had done that, I would be banned from CW for certain! I just simply asked what we were calling "vintage"? It was incredible what the response was! I don't even remember what poste they lost control of sanity on right now. I'm sure it was embarrassing to them, so just forget. I certainly want forget being attacked that way for no explained reason! I just know that I will never clk or comment on CindB's posts again. That one has good posts, but insane obviously!
