    I recently purchased this as a research project. After days of research, I am still at square one! This phone is 7" tall, hand-blown, all glass, except cord. Appears to be an oil can candlestick telephone replica. The real phone dates to around 1890-1900, made by stromberg- Carlson? Or Western Electric?Thank you in advance for any and all help!

      Well, the curly cords don't pop up till well after the original candlestick years. The 1950s saw many candlestick reproductions, easily spotted by curly cords.

      Thank you for the information, Spirit. I will run with that!
