Product Description

 Crystal Clear  Western Electric 302 telephones were shown at he 1937 Worlds Fair. The Automatic Electric AE34  Monophone  was not, but this is how it would have looked if it was. Much more beautiful than a 302. Much more stylish and much more Art Deco.

                            Here is a Automatic Electric telephone  

 Its an Crystal Clear AE34 and its a working phone. This phone was not at the Words Fair but if it would have been, this is what it would have looked like. This model was out 3 years prior to 1937 and it was one of their first models with the self contained ringer. AE34 was one of the first self contained working phones made. It has the single plunger.  All the working  parts in this phone are original and made by the  Automatic Electric company  in the 1930s. The  fancy handset bands, plunger and finger wheel assembly all have  fresh  nickel plating.  The finger wheel is a special Sanitary wheel.

These are very heavy phones and were never made cheap like the telephones are today. There is nothing like the looks, feel and weight of art deco telephone telephones from the past. The original ringer produces a wonderful sound that is seldom heard. We have been restoring antique telephones for 18 years and we love what we do. It shows. Most of the AE34 were made in black.There were 8 other colors made besides black and they are very rare desk sets and pretty much unobtainable. All are in the hands of serious collectors who will never let loose of them and who could blame them. These phones are a thing of beauty and extremely rare. This wonderful telephone is  work of art with a Crystal Clear body and handset out of a special  heavy duty plastic. It has the same look and feel of bakelite and the same weight. It will not deteriorate as the bakelite does. Many of these phones in collections have shrunk or have other issues. Decades from now this Art deco telephone will remain the same. Very few of these will be made and we have sincere hope and belief that they go up in value.

Its plastic  has yellowed to an amber like color from age.Included is a nice braided  Extensicord handset cord. We have several other colored AE34 desksets that are for sale including a Chinese Red AE34  and  a Ivory AE34. We also have a  Royal Blue AE34 for sale also.
