    I bought this Strowger candlestick off Ebay and it had many issue's. the dial card and the dial card cover plate were missing. It was missing the ring control button at the bottom, and it had the wrong transmitter face plate, plus it was all brass. Several months later the candlestick has been restored.

      Did you do the restoration job yourself? It looks amazing!
    2. Signaholic Signaholic, 9 years ago
      Wow Tom, what a great restoration you did there! Gotta get me a cool Candlestick phone!
    3. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 9 years ago
      aycockonxion, I did most of the restoral myself, however I left the nickel plating up to a professional. I do nickel plating, but not on this scale. I plate transmitters, back cups and hookswitchs, thumb screws and nuts.

      What an awesome phone you have there, and wonderful restoration job. It made me think, to the original owner this was just a telephone and now over 100 years later it's on CW being praised. As I look around my kitchen I wonder what items we may not consider collectible now may be on display by folks like us in the future : )
    31. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 8 years ago
      MattyG, Thank you for your comment. It makes you wonder what will be collectible in the near future. I have seen where the first color phones from the fifty has become collectible for the younger generation.
