Type 12 MT

An early "tin box" style magneto desk phone introduced in Britain in the early 1900s. It was probably introduced into Australia about 1910 due to a shortage of desk phones. It was manufactured by the General Electric Company. It was similar in appearance to a Western Electric model, but was slightly larger. The British version had more elaborate transfers, but the finish of the Australian models was very plain. It is a very heavy phone due to the large internal magneto.
