Add a memory or information about this object
- Bell Set 25 was used with candlestick, or pedestal, telephones which were being re-issued in the 1950s because of equipment shortages. If a newer handset telephone replaced the candlestick the induction coil in the Bell Set 25 was shorted out by the installer to convert the 25 into a 26 Bell Set and avoid changing the Bell Set.
