Pre-War, Vintage, Mid Century Correct Telephone

OK, let's say you are a midcentury aficionado. And let's say you want a period correct telephone for your pre-war to mid 1950s interior design. You know, just like the one Lucy & Ricky had.

Lucy on, what has become known in some circles as, a "Lucy Phone"

 This is what you're looking for. A Western Electric Model 302. This one is from November, 1939. It has an E1 handset. And it is missing the clip on piece that holds the phone number (which I call a dial center). But the best part of this phone is - IT WORKS! Come on inside and get the full scoop on these telephones.

It looks a mess, but come inside and see what it looks like now.
