Stunning Black

The 1930s signalled the growth in manufacture of Bakelite telephones with their clean classic lines and the increased use of the handset combination in preference to the separate ear and mouthpieces. As a result of this development throughout the world, one or two classics emerged from most countries and we will show a small number of these here. This picture shows a black PMG 232 "Pyramid" phone recovered from use in Australia, but also common in the UK.  

Click thumbnails

Pyramid phone without the bell base making a more petite look. Often installed this way

It is very similar to the initial shape developed by the British Siemens Bros. Company and called the Neophone.

It was most commonly made in black, but mottled brown, ivory, red and green were also available these other colours do command very high prices, but great care is needed in purchasing because they could be reproduction quite a number from India have been seen recently. GEC (UK) also made a similar unit called the Gecophone.

#2 Western Electric CB 

wall phone  finished in a darker mahogany colour finish.

Complete and with the correct  receiver and transmitter and horn. All original including the Western Electric manufacturers graphic on the front panel 

This type of phone was used in the 1920/1930s era and would have been connected to Central Battery exchanges that were used before the telephone network was changed to Auto Dial. The exchange operator was signalled by lifting the receiver; no magneto handle to turn.

 This meant that the technology was only suited to cities where the telephone was close to the  telephone exchange.

Stromberg Carlson

ex-PMG wall telephone

 

A rare, but genuine early PMG phone used in Australia.

Very good condition and has all of the parts that it should have as a genuine PMG Type 233MW. These phones were manufactured by the Stromberg Carlson Telephone Manuf. Co of Rochester NY, USA.

Stromberg Carlson telephones were not imported in the quantities that the British Ericsson were and consequently are much less often seen.

See the manufacturers marks on the Generator/Magneto (picture no 5)
