Right after the turn of the century the blue bell paperweights made their debut within the Bell System appearing on employee's desk. It is believed Fenton Glass Co. manufactured these paperweight starting around 1910 until 1930. The individual companies within the bell system ordered these paperweights with their names in white stencling on the front and Local & Long Distance Telephone on the back side. However there several exceptions to this, two of them being Mountain States Telephone and Western Electric Company. The blue paperweights were manufactured in ice blue, peacock blue, and colbalt blue. The metal paperweight in the center is a very old Post and Co long pole receiver. I added some of my intercoms i have collected.
