Tell me about a Sparks-Withington candlestick phone

Today I had a chance to buy a Sparks-Withington candlestick phone - not to be confused with Stromberg-Carlson. I didn't even know that S-W (presumably Sparton) made phones. As I recall, it was a bit shorter than a W.E. 50AL, and had a bulldog mouthpiece.

As expected, Google and Google Images turn up a lot of Sparks-Withington radios and Sparks-Withington car horns - but I haven't found a hit on telephones.

Any info would be welcome.
