Candlestick Phones - A Hot Collectible Area

Collecting Candlestick Phones


talking on candlestick phone Nothing depicts the Victorian era like dainty women in ruffly dresses conversing on a candlestick phone. If you picture the parlor of a Victorian home at the turn of the twentieth century, you will see a candlestick phone sitting proudly on a mahogany table. Besides their inherent beauty and allure as an antique, perhaps it is this strong connection to their heritage that makes candlestick phones one of the hottest collecting markets going today.

There are also several other unique reasons that are
drawing new collectors to this field.


Still Affordable

Easy to Display

One large 'country cabinet', or a couple of wall shelves can handily show off a couple dozen old candlestick phones. Collectors like being able to display their collections easily without having to spend a lot of money on special cases or cabinets.

Not that Many Made
Candlestick phones were around for four decades - 1890s to 1920s - long enough to have significant sells to the general public, but not in overwhelming numbers. A lot of models were only sold for a year or two. Others only saw regional distribution. There just wasn't any individual models that saw millions made and sold. Collectors like it when they have a collectible that is unique or scarce.

Somewhat Rare

Many thousands of old candlestick phones from the early twentieth century were burned, crushed, buried or otherwise gotten rid of - by whatever means expedient. Candlestick phones from that era, that still survive in any condition, are getting harder and harder to find. Collectors like having rare items.

Considerable Number of Variations
At the turn of the twentieth century there was several manufacturers competing for the emerging telephone market. Each company came up with their own distinct designs. This makes for a collectibles area that is diverse with respect to makes, models and styles. Collectors like having a large selection of items to collect.
