"It is a melodeon almost certainly made in Saxony in the town of Klingenthal in the late 19th or early 20th century. These were relatively cheap mass produced instruments."

"That's it!  The one described in the 1892 catalog.  Thanks a bunch.  An internet search has only yielded the ads in the American Agriculturist.......I have yet to find the real thing anywhere."

"Thanks Robert, for your reply.  I cannot find any markings on it.  The keyboard part is missing.....maybe it was on it?  It is pretty fragile. "

"It looks like a Kellogg and Strombergh 1907. Another manufacturer was Western Electric. These vary in price depending on if someone is out looking for one. They can go for $100 to $300 nowadays. SOme have gone a lot higher."

A candlestick phone.....info.

I just purchased this candlestick phone and would like more info about it.  It looks pretty generic.....there are no marks on the earpiece.  On the back of the transmitter it says "Pat'd Nov 26, 1901 March 19, 1907 April 14, 1908 and on the cradle it says "F118".  It seems heavily painted.  Any information on this phone would be highly appreciated.…See More
