Fellow telephone enthusiasts! I found this at an antique shop, and I haven't been able to track down where it would've come from.

I've found pictures of the same design on recycled bronze that was given to employees, but haven't found a picture of this one.

It doesn't have a registration number on the back like the ones given to employees, so I'm guessing these might have been sold to the public?

There's more to do with these days, but holy cow that is cool that it's still pretty much the same editor it has always been.
