Telephone No. 10

Another Ericsson CB phone, probably their CG400. This steel-cased phone was introduced around 1912 and was intended to replace the more ornate (and more expensive) older-style desk phones like the Tele No 1. Decoration was minimal. It was usually finished in plain black with a Commonwealth of Australia transfer and gold pinstriping. Its lifespan was brief, the generally cheaper candlestick phones being preferred after the first World War until the bakelite phones appeared.
