The telephone’s legs were made of aluminum, a relatively new material at that time. The ‘Eiffel Tower’ telephone was designed in 1910 at the Bell factory in Antwerp (later renamed Western Electric) as a response to the ‘Skeleton’ telephone by Ericsson, which was very popular at the time. This model was actively used in Great Britain, Belgium, France, Australia, Spain, Russia and many others. Despite this, it never gained wide popularity.
