The case and handset of this phone are made from Bakelite. The design was a significan't improvement over earlier Kellogg models in that the interior space was much more efficiently used, thereby eliminating the tangle of wires that was often present. This was accomplished through the use of a molded one piece connecting block that was quite unique to the telephone industry at the time. The telephone components (capacitor and coil) plugged into the connecting block and were field changeable -- thereby allowing the phone to be easily converted between local battery, and common battery service. Kellogg manufactured the Model 1000 in two additional styles: a wall phone, and a desk phone with a magneto in the base. This phone has been fully tested on modern phone lines, and it has been fitted with a modular phone plug for your convenience.
