Stromberg Carlson Candlestick
Like the Kellogg candlestick, the Stromberg Carlson was produced for the independent U.S. phone companies. It is somewhat shorter than a Western Electric and better built and finished than the Kellogg. As a result it is heavier and has a more solid feel about it.
It is interesting to compare the different styles of candlestick. Most U.S.
or British companies phones only varied much in the style of the swivel at the
top of the pillar. It took the French to make it a distinctive and more elegant
style. To see what I mean, take a look at the S.I.T phone
elsewhere in this section.
