Another candlestick to ID. Can’t track down a match.
Many thanks for any info.

Looks like Western Electric from the BTMC factory. Missing what was probably a 7000 series dial.

What is written on the tag?

There is a faint stamp on the rear side/top of the transmitter cup (nothing on the perch), possibly:  ??30ACB

I can’t make out the wording on the tag.

I have to agree with Jack. This is a BTMC model 23677. I’ve seen these before. I think I have literature somewhere and will look for it later.
The base is the same for both models, with plugs to be removed for adding the dial on the 73677 model.
I think these were only made for the European market. If we had better clear photos of the name plate we could probably interpret what it says.
Hope this helps!

A better photograph of the tag might help - the resolution is too low.

These were used in Europe, the UK (Original Tele No 1), Asia and probably other places.

Ken

Any literature would be good. Appreciate you taking the time to look.

This is a BTMC transmitter element - close. If it even has its original element.
