more Offering a stunning 1930s Western Electric 202 Deco telephone in fully refurbished near mint condition. The telephone is in full working order and has a modular plug for modern wall outlets. It has been fully tested, serviced and is ready for use. The telephone base and ringer box have been powder coated in the original semi-gloss black finish. The heavy bakelite handset was fully cleaned and polished. This telephone has the most desirable of the handsets used on the 202 model, which was called an E1. All the cords are new in the original style. The dial is a highly desirable model 4H, which has the fun 'clickity clack' sound. The bottom is covered in a fresh replacement suede, which gives excellent grip to the base while dialing. A near mint condition example with stunning Art Deco design and time tested quality. The ringer box and telephone together weigh approximately 15 lbs., as everything is made of metal and bakelite.
The ringer box would traditionally be attached/screwed into a wall just above a baseboard near a desk or sofa, with the telephone on a tabletop. The length of the cords will give you plenty of options. The ringer box is so attractive, you may want to rest it near the phone. The options are many. The ringer bells sound fantastic. The new matching cotton covered modular line cord allows the telephone to be used with modern wall sockets. This is one of the finest examples of the elegant 1930s Western Electric 202 telephone, along with slightly more rare components. It's in absolutely stunning condition and ready to start using.
Note: If you use a VOIP cable or digital based telephone service, an adapter may be required to dial out. There are plenty of "pulse to tone dial" adapters available online, which are inexpensive. The adapter converts analog pulses to tone dialing for digital internet phone based services. If you have a standard old fashioned traditional landline, you will be able to forgo the adapter and just plug the telephone into the wall outlet. less
