    This wall telephone is a bit unusual as the handset is off to the side a bit like the wood wall phones. Others like the far more popular Western Electric Model 500 wall phone. The model 500 had the handset hanging over the dial. This phone is a bit bulkier but as a collector this one looks neater if not sleeker.
    There is a date which seems to be 10961 on the back although I have my doubts that it is the date. I looked up this phone and every single one has this 61 number. Plus the numbers are in the wrong order for the US dating system. It does seem to be 1950s-1960s. Looks like this one got converted to the modular phone lines. It probably had to be hard wired into the wall at first. That probably explains the repair sticker on the back too.
    I still need to post Donald Duck.
