Circa 1908-1920s "Federal Manufacturing Corps" steel wall-phone. Federal bought Ericsson steel phones in that period.
I won it in a local auction from when a antique store closed down. I had nearly bought it on one of the last days of the antique store, but I decided to wait.
The "label" is not a label, but graven into the paint. I will repaint the phone but keep that part untouched.
It's missing the crank shaft, but I'm sure I can find another one eventually.
