This website is interesting and informative. My mother purchased what appears to be an old Western Electric telephone today at a thrift store. We have not been able to determine its age. It is a small oak box (approximately 10" X 7";) with two "ringers" on the top and a rotary dial on the bottom. It has a oak hand set on the side. The ringers, dial, and metal on the hand set is nickle plated brass. The receiver has the bakelite parts. The works are accessed through hinges at the top. Any information about the age and possible value would be very much appreciated. My father worked for the Bell System for 35 years, so telephones are close to our heart. :D

Anna: yes it is possible to set up a candlestick telephone to use on today's lines but you did not leave me a way to contact you. At the very top of the website's "home page" you will see an email link next to the spinning dial. Email that question to me.
