As you can see it is a wonderful design and made by smiths. I am not sure of the date but a guess would be 1960s. Made from what looks to be a Thermo setting compound similar to early 162 1930s telephones. The item is perfect with no scratches chips or repairs. The feet were perished but it would be very easy to make some nice felt ones. The mechanism works for around a minute and then stops and so would need a watchmaker to give the internals a service. I think this would apeal to any telephone collector or someone interested in social history. Size width = 3" X Depth = 4" X Hight = 2 5/8" inches.
