The candlestick telephone is the most popular "antique-looking" telephone that springs into people's minds. This type of telephone was immortalised in films in Great Britain and the United States. They remained in common use in Britain from 1900 until the 1950s. Candlesticks are also referred to as Pedestal telephones or Tulip telephones because of the shape of the mouthpiece.
