    In a small antique store, I have finally found a dispatcher's head-set! While I don't think it's older than the 1930s, it'll suffice for my dispatcher candle-stick. I can continue restoring it now that I have all the pieces.

    No markings on the single earphone outside of on and off.

      Thanks, racer4four. The second photo was from months ago, when I had finished the first phone. I didn't do as much work to this one (repainted and tried polishing the Bakelite), as I wasn't sure I'd find an older headset.
