This is a very cool original working Western Electric dial candlestick. It is a neat and original set, which has been cleverly restored by an expert in the field such at that the phone does not require a subset to work. There is a mini-network in the base, allowing it to plug directly into any modern RJ11 jack. Now if you want it to ring you will need to order this part: RINGER BOX. I will gladly wire the ringer box so that you can plug the phone directly into the box, or remove it at will, if both are ordered. The item shown here is the exact phone you will receive.
