BEAUTIFUL 1928 WESTERN ELECTRIC DIAL CANDLESTICK PHONE WITH RINGER BOX


















Description

 

 

Up for auction is a 1928 Western Electric dial candlestick telephone. This candlestick phone has been painstakingly restored to as new working condition.

I have many hours invested in restoring this phone, and it works perfectly. It is beautiful with mirror like black powder coat paint. It has a deep rich high gloss color to it that is much like they were when manufactured back in the day.

Powder coat is much more durable than spay painting them, which chips very easily.

The dial has been completely disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, lightly oiled, and reassembled to WE spec's.

The bakelite receiver is stunning, and has been buffed to a brilliant shine. The bakelite mouthpiece is a high quality reproduction, hard to tell the difference from the real thing, and it has the WE star in the middle. The mouthpiece and the receiver are free from any chips or cracks.

The ringer box is mint and rings with that wonderful two tone bell sound with inbound calls. The ringer can be mounted on the wall, or sit on a table. The winning bidder needs to let me know whether they want it on the wall or just to sit on a table as there is some adjustment that I need to make to adapt it to a wall one.

The bottom suede on the phone is new, exactly like the original leather. The cloth covered line cord has a regular jack on the end so you can plug in and dial away!

Bid with confidence, I have been restoring antique telephones since 1988, and my feedback speaks for itself. Payment must be paid within three days from the end of the auction, NO E CHECKS. Shipping is automatically factored in at checkout.
