English: A candlestick telephone features a mouth piece (transmitter) mounted at the top of a stand, and a receiver (ear phone) that is held by the user to the ear during a call. When the telephone is not in use, the receiver rests in the fork of a switch hook on the side. Candlestick telephones were common from the 1890s to the 1930s; more recent models included rotary dials.
