A bakelite design during the art deco era originally having a handset, which paralleled the style of Kellogg, W.E., and Stromberg Carlson. This phone was used also on top of a larger curved bakelite magneto housing to serve rural areas. Since crankers are no longer very practical for signaling, these top parts can be removed from the magneto housing and with dial installed and decorative yet today. Optional Brass fingerwheel and cloth cord available.

Leich began as Eureka in the late 1800’s in St. Louis & Chicago, then became Graycraft Liech [after it’s founders] around 1902 and later Liech [Graycraft departed]. It’s home for many years was Genoa, Illinois. In the 1950’s they were absorbed by Automatic Electric Company who continued with the same product until stock was depleted.

This phone was made from the early 1930's until the late 1940’s. Phone weighs 6 lbs.
