C. B. Telephones
The moulded Bakelite casework is gate-hinged on a metal base plate, to which it is fastened by one screw, and the cradle is designed to allow the micro-telephone to be suspended vertically over the front of the instrument during the temporary absence of the user. The interior apparatus, consisting of anti-side-tone induction coil, condenser, ringer, switch and terminals, is mounted as a unit which can be readily removed from the case; alternatively, the case with equipment unit attached, can be lifted off the hinges for maintenance purposes.
The Bakelite micro-telephone is of a type notable for its reception and transmission qualities.
Normally produced in Black, these telephones can also be obtained in Chinese
or Jade Green if specially ordered.
