My husband found the candlestick phone for a good price while we were on vacation in North Carolina. She's a beauty isn't she! This baby will eventually be placed in the living room (will be turned into a study) or family room. It's funny...when you show these phones to the younger generation (post 90s babies) they are in awe...lol. This one is from the early 1920s and has an original 5-cent courtesy coin box on it.
This is a Western Electric model 202 that is dated 1936. The model 202 was one of Western Electric's mainstays from 1930 to 1937. This one is all original.
More clocks from my hubby's collection
This is a late 1940s advertising clock made by Neon Products of Lima, Ohio. It hung in an appliance store in central Virginia for almost 50 years before my husband acquired it. Philco was based in Philadelphia and their name is synonymous with antique radios, televisions, and major appliances. This clock displays a common problem found on many old advertising clocks. These clocks are supposed to have low wattage (less than 15W) bulbs installed inside them. Someone installed 60 watters in here and it caused the paint on the glass to start flaking and de-laminating. Higher wattage bulbs generate too much heat inside these clocks.
My husband found these flashlights at various flea markets and thrift shops for next to nothing. He had to replace the bulb in two of them but they are really bright. I will grab one of these if I have to take the trash out at night and I can see everything. All of them are in regular use around our house.
Here's a coin-op hospital radio that I love (this one will be placed with the rest of the collection). This is a Telex model T-6 made around 1954. It mounted to the head of a bed and also contained a reading light.
