Skeletal telephone manufactured by LM Ericsson, around 1892. It was used in the central office of the Department of Mental Hygiene of the Victoria Government, around 1900.
Ericsson skeletal phones were manufactured from 1892 until the late 1910s. The ram horns or metal bars that form the legs are actually the magnets which, when the handle is rotated in the generator body, creates an AC voltage to signal the manual operator or at one point of service to the other phone at the other end.
