This two-box wood telephone is called a 'glass front' model thanks to the glass panel which lets you see inside the top box (and the six-bar magneto inside). The bakelite receiver is marked Chicago telephones satisfy. The shelf on the bottom box has a Chicago name plate. This phone has a red and blue cloth cord.
