Up for your consideration is this complete set of a 1920’s
cradle telephone base with 1930's subscriber set (ringer box), by Western Electric.
For those of you who have been watching and bidding on this item, there was an error in the original listing, as it is always our practice to offer free domestic shipping.
Phone is a Model 102, easily identifiable by the round B1
base, only made on the 102
In phenomenal condition, with fabric on base intact, but
some chipped paint on unit ~ see photos
Model 102 was only produced from 1927-1929, when oval based
202 was introduced
Model 102 designation refers to the electrical
configuration, and the B1 is the designation of the round base
It was the first phone produced specifically for a
handset, to allow a free hand for taking notes or other tasks
This rare phone is unique, in that it has no dial
The handset is a bakelite F1, and properly attached to the phone, clearly marked F1,
This was often done, as the handset that came with the
102 had the E1 handset, with the horrid spit-cup mouthpiece...it is from 1938 or after
Subsriber set, or ringer box, as more commonly known, is a
Western Electric model 634a, and clearly marked as such, and is post 1930 with the advent of anti sidetone
Subscriber set is properly connected to the phone, and appears
complete, with both bells, condenser, and induction coil
Ringer box has some oxidation on its exterior, but many
people take them down and restore them…we sell out items as acquired, to
The phone, handset, and ringer box will clean up nicely,
should you desire
We NEVER clean our vintage items, as this often decreases
This system has not
been tested, but, as all major parts are present, we are confident that it will
either function properly immediately, or, merely require some relatively basic
rewiring.An abundance of literature is
easily obtainable on how to properly wire the system.
This is quite a rare find, and would make a wonderful
addition to any vintage collection, conversation piece, or photo or movie prop.
