This type of desk set is called a "potbelly" due to the bulge in the center section of the shaft. The Chicago potbelly has a bakelite sleeve over the potbelly section so the user can get a better grip on the telephone. This set was found in a boarded up drug store in the town of "Happy Camp" located near the Klamath River in Northern California. It is now part of the Christianson Telephone Collection.
