Portable telephone of this type was listed in "Taschenhandbuch für Feldtelegrafisten" issued in 1917 for German Imperial army communications troops. 

Carbon microphone and electromagnetic receiver were placed back-to-back near the operator's ear. 

Such portable telephones were produced in Germany up to late 1930s. Our sample has a capacitor inside marked "3.39".
