Northern Electric #5 Bakelite Phone. 1920's.
Art deco desk phone from the 1930's. Black with curly cloth receiver cord and brown cloth line cord. Very good condition that is consistent with age. No cracks. Patent on receiver is 1922. Parts appear to be original. Base has "No-5" stamped on surface. This phone was made for "manual service" or "common battery service" and therefore does not have a dial.
