| Merchant: 123Greetings.com Crosley 1920's Candlestick Phone - Brushed ChromeThe Candlestick phone, also known as the upright, initially became popular during the early 1900's before the introduction of the one-piece handset. The first Candlestick phones were introduced when phones were connected to a large wooden box called a subset, containing a battery, bell and crank. How far we've come! From its bell-shaped mouthpiece to its cloth-covered receiver cord, this telephone replica recalls a vintage instrument from the 1900's. A closer look reveals some modern technology, including a decorative dial that functions as a push button for tone/pulse operation as well as a center medallion that serves as a redial button. This modern day version of the Candlestick phone would have surely made Alexander Graham Bell proud.
