Vintage Black Party Line Telephone Bell Western Electric
Product ID : 1268
The selected item has been sold.
A nice piece of history, vintage black party line telephone. On the receiver is Bell System, Manufactured by Western Electric Company, F l . Just picking up the receiver, which has some weight to it, brings back memories. It would be a nice piece to display on a side table or desk.
This phone is in good condition, there are some indentations on the side, small melted spots. I don't think they detract from the phone, I have shown them in the photos. Underneath is scratched and the felt on the feet is worn. The receiver is in very good condition. It does have the insert with number on the front. This is missing on some I have seen. It has the old style cord on the receiver, and a very long cord that would have been used to hook it up.
I am not selling this as a working phone, I do not recommend hooking it up. The attached wire weighs 10 ounces, if you would prefer to save on postage and cut some of this off please let me know.
The base of this phone measures approx. 5 x 7 1/2 inches.
