“This device is inherently of no value to us.”
Western Union’s response to being offered the patent to
the telephone.

Yes, this vintage piece is a “telephone table.” Does any one remember these? How about the rotary dial? Or the Operator asking you “Number, Please?

Nevermind.

But the furniture makers of this country were quick to see the phone’s value,  and that was, it needed a table to sit upon so you could find it easily when it was ringing. They quickly produced thousands of these specially  designed tables that were, no doubt, promptly nestled next to the most comfortable chair in  the house.

A wide second shelf was thoughtfully  provided to hold pounds upon pounds of phone books, yellow pages and of course your personal phone book. Or, if you were a man about town, maybe  ” your little black book.”
