Unlike Western Electric and Northern Electric which had very close ties to the Bell Telephone operating companies, Stromberg Carlson was an independent telephone manufacturer that supplied telephones to a variety of non-Bell telephone companies. During the 1920s they introduced the 1177 and 1178 deskphones. These phones were made of metal, and like most phones of the era, they required a separate subset containing a ringer, and the components needed to connect to the telephone line.

The 1177 did not have a dial and an operator was therefore required to route all calls. The 1178 had a dial and was used in locations where automatic switching equipment was available. These were the first cradle phones made by Stromberg Carlson.

This 1178 is in beautiful condition and has been painstakingly buffed back to its original gloss and sheen. This particular phone is a wonderful example of how this phone was meant to be. An early spitcup handset is included as well as the early original North Electric brushed nickel dial. A subset or modern network would be required to hook this phone up on todays telephone lines.
