    Here I have an antique wall mounted telephone. In photo #3 it reads "Made in USA Nov 1 '92" I'm assuming it must have been 1892. I believe the wood is oak, but not 100%. I can't figure out whether this is a Kellog, Western Electric, Bell? No idea. Any help would be grand.

    Thanks,

    Lou

      Lou,
      Your wall telephone looks like a oak 1938 Western Electric. It has a Kellogg arm and back cup, but a Stromberg-Carlson transmitter faceplate. the wiring diagram is a Western Electric. A photo of the inside would help ID.

      I've changed the last photo and took one of the inside.

      Looks like Western Electric inside, the magneto and hookswitch are W.E. looking at the shelf that holds the magneto, there was at one time a larger four hole 4 or 5 bar magneto.
