Tele 121 Wall Phone

Tele 121

Another popular form of phone was the wall telephone Tele 121. Similar to the bellset of the Candlestick phone, but with the dial, microphone and earpiece mounted on it. Unusually, this example is also mounted on a backboard with writing slope. Many had black enamelled dials. Some were later rebuilt with the 200 type handset to become the Tele 221, below.
