Looks like an American Electric Type-21 wall set as shown on page 10 of American Electric Bulletin 100. It’s available for downloading from the TCI Library.

Thanks.  I was not able to find this version / type with out the dial step.  didn't think they would be type 21's.  Transmitters look sweet, to bad the switch hook is missing on both and only one receiver.
I been working on several of these...

Stub,

Thought you might be lookin.  Those transmitter parts are not cheap.   Oldphoneworks was very expensive for 2 transmitter cups, one mount, and two attaching rods.  $147.  Paid $50 for the transmitter face plates w/ae engraved. thru a private seller

Had to send mine to Mr. Hilz.  I couldn't get it to work properly...He did!!!!
Works great now.   Kinda got me wanting to restore a couple more of em
