Western Electric Candlestick Telephone 20-A Swing Arm
« on: May 20, 2016, 12:10:26 PM »


I purchased this on eBay last Saturday. I bid on before we left to go to yard sales and was pleasantly surprised to find I won it when I go home. I have another that came with a mounting bracket that attached to the end, this did not. I had an extra set of speakers that I was not using and the wall mount was perfect. This was in very nice shape to begin with, but it cleaned up great.

I purchased it from a Forum member, who's eBay handle I did not recognize. Sure is a beauty. Looking for the proper headpiece now.  I just think they are the coolest sticks and not an easy find....Doug

Looks real nice.   There was a candlestick that had a hook somewhat like that, that had been on CL here for a long time.

What is it attached to on the wall?
