A superb antique desk telephone, believed to be manufactured by Ericsson or Jacobsen, with a retailer's mark for Karlsens EIektriske Forrentning, Oslo.

Overall the telephone is in good condition, the brass retains virtually all of it's nickel plating and the wooden base is free from cracks and splits. The handset still has it's switch lever intact, the cabling appears original as does the junction box. The lever to the front moves freely and the numbers and letters are present and clear. 

Circa 1920s.
