Mystery Solved

    H.C. Tafle Of louisville, Ky was a jobber and retail dealer of electrical supply. the tandem telephone you have was more then likely was manufactured Swedish-American Telephone Co of Chacago, Ill. which was founded in 1899. The company manufactured some of the own parts, but acquired many of them
    from other manufactures, such as L.M Ericsson. Your wall telephone is using L.M. Ericsson hardware. I need to see the inside top box to verify this. Over all this is a nice telephone to own, great find.

    Thank you. L.M. Ericsson is stamped on the mouthpiece. I will have to find some type of key to open the top box. I will post a photo when I figure out a way to unlock it. Thank you for all the info. I do not have any knowledge of these phones. I thought it was beautiful. Thanks Again!
