Title: HOLTZER CABOT HANDSET, WALL TELEPHONE OR TESTSET **WORKS**
Post by: Doug Rose on September 27, 2012, 06:34:09 PM
I was shocked to get this on eBay this week as cheap as I did. I own a few WE "Hanging Handsets" but I have never seen a Holtzer Cabot. Basically the same design except for the transmitter and the bakelite handle. Being a Boston boy, I was thrilled to see this, more than thrilled to pay on $33.56 for it. No one else liked it as I was the only bidder. There is still some really nice stuff out there!!....Doug

That's a very pretty handset, aesthetically as well as functional.

Great find! I hope you will replace / remove the 'cord'...
