Stromberg Carlson 1198. Bakelite case. Circa 1930s. Unlike Western Electric and Northern Electric which had very close ties to the Bell Telephone operating companies, Stromberg Carlson was an independent telephone manufacturer that supplied telephones to a variety of non-Bell telephone companies. During the 1930s they introduced the 1197 and 1198 deskphones. These phones were made of bakelite, and like all phones of the era, they required a separate subset containing a ringer, and the components needed to connect to the telephone line.

The 1197 did not have a dial and an operator was therefore required to route all calls. The 1198 had a dial and was used in locations where automatic switching equipment was available.

This 1198 is in beautiful condition and has been wired with a modern network to facilitate connection to the phone line. While there is no ringer installed in the phone, separate external ringers are available as an option. As with all older equipment, it is your responsibility to check with you local phone company prior to connecting this phone to the Public network.
