    I was wondering if anyone had any information on this candlestick telephone with regards to date, value etc.
    It is very heavy, has a light fitting and no dial.
    When you take the bottom off it has a paper wiring diagram glued in the base.
    It has no 150 stamped onto it.

      Your candlestick telephone was manufactured by the Automatic Telephone Manufacturing Co Ltd. London England around 1927. Your candlestick has been modified to be used as a lamp. There not alot of interest or value in this European
      manufactured telephone.

      I purchased one off ebay for $155.00. Only to find out it is a "Fake" from India! The only two pieces on it that was "Original" was the transmitter and the bottom cover plate. Looks like you have the real thing.

      Just bought a true original GPO candlestick. Unlike the reproduction fake I first bought on Ebay months ago. Got to do "homework" before buying on line.
