WALLIGRAPH CANDLESTICK TELEPHONE HOLDER, 1930's

Wall mounted telephone holder for Candlestick telephones.

Your comments:

  • Further to Jon Wayre's recollections which I tend to agree with, I have one of these pantographs and it has what looks like a purpose made platform with a spring loaded retaining slider which is the right size for a rectangular base telephone such as a pyramid model.

  • The Trade mark stamped on the side of the unit states 'Walligraph Registered Trade Mark Telephone Arm'

  • My father worked for Walligraph in the 1940s/50s.
    Walligraph produced industrial lamps for use in factories, workshops, et c. What this actually is, is a Wally Pantograph lamp holder that has had the lamp replaced with a candlestick phone. It looks good and fits the phone perfectly but is something that must have been made up by someone as I own a few lamps and have several brochures of the Pantograph and there is no mention of a telephone model.
