Antique Intercom Edwards & Company from Banff Springs Hotel


  • Details
    FOR SALE ☞ Banff Springs Hotel Intercom Edwards & Company

    DESCRIPTION ☞A unique and rare piece of hotel memorabilia that was once used in the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff National Park, Canada.

    Made by the Edwards & Company of Norwalk Conn. The construction of the intercom is Bakelite and has all of its original components as well as original cord. The handset is stamped with Edwards & Company Norwalk Conn as well as a diamond with 1872, The year Edwards and Co. was founded. The front speaker plate also has Edwards stamped on the front as well as "speak here" on the bottom of the speaker plate.

    This piece was procured from an estate sale along with numerous Banff Springs Hotel memorabilia, which is how we were able to determine the hotel the intercom was used in. We also procured a few other pieces from the hotel that can also be found in both our Etsy and physical store.

    DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ Approx: L 5.5 inch H 9 inch

    CONDITION ☞ The condition of the intercom is very good. The Bakelite case has no cracks, chips or repairs. The cord and listening cup are also in very good condition. The parts inside the intercom all look to be in place with nothing missing. We assume this piece was made redundant when upgrades happened to the hotel in the 1940's and was working at the time it was replaced. However, we have not formally tested it or put power too it. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos?
