Product Description


Unlike Western Electric and Northern Electric which had very close ties to the Bell Telephone operating companies, Stromberg Carlson was an independent telephone manufacturer that supplied telephones to a variety of non-Bell telephone companies.

During the 1920s they introduced the 1177 and 1178 deskphones. These phones were made of bakelite   The 1177 did not have a dial and an operator was therefore required to route all calls. The 1178 had a dial and was used in locations where automatic switching equipment was available. These were Stromberg Carlsons first "cradle" phones.
This 1177 is in beautiful condition and its bakelite  been painstakingly buffed back to its original gloss and sheen. The metal body has been bead blasted and powder coated. Powder coating is the very best durable finish.

This particular phone is a wonderful example of how this phone was meant to be. The original 1177 handset is present here. A new brown cloth covered handset cord has also been added to this classic. A subset or modern network would be required to hook this phone up on todays telephone lines.
