Bought this just for the heck of it.Think I paid a fair price considering its age & condition which overall is pretty damn good.Missing only the original hook for the handpiece (ear), i`ve used an S hook for the picture.No idea if it works yet (110v) but that`s ok until i`m ready to sort it out:

After a little spit & polish:

Will eventually strip & restain a little darker to blend in with the furniiture.
cheers

Hya Tinradio, Phil Nelson of Phil's Old Radios has restored a similar, if not identical beastie.

He's written up the process . http://antiqueradio.org/guild01.htm.

Howdy 6A8G. Yep,saw this originally when perusing various sites & must have been a couple of days later one came up on 'the bay' so I snapped it up.Other than missing the hook to hold the hand piece (which in fact is the On/Off switch) it works very nicely as I bought a step-down transformer to test its working capacity.Will probably restore it later on but at the moment have only cleaned,polished & linished the handpiece/bells etc.Makes for a nice & unusual item in the garage where I spend a lot of time (don`t we all).cheers
