It originally came with a watch case-type receiver, not a G-type handset!
 
I don't remember seeing anything in the Library.

Paul, Thank you for the update. it looked kind of odd with a newer handset to it... do you know if it will support a dial?

John,
 
It's an intercom, and certainly wasn't designed to be used on the public network.
 
However, anything will support a dial - even a cardboard box.
 
All you need is a mini-network, hookswitch, handset and dial.  Ringer optional.
 
I've used that method to convert many bakelite magneto sets containing only a hookswitch and handset to dial.
