Here is an original bakelite telephone made by Automatic Electric telephone. There are no cracks or chips in this beautiful working phone.
This AE40 Monophone is better than new with matching black woven cloth cords. It has a modular plug on the line cord so you will just plug it in and enjoy. This very elegant Art deco phone is very stylish with its curves.
The bakelite was buffed and polished and its dial calibrated.Virtually no wear to the dial or its porcelain dial plate.
The rubber base is brand new and is exactly like the original. Its soft and pliable and will not damage you furniture.
Inside the phone are 2 nice individually tuned bells that harmonize to deliver a wonderful nostalgic ring that has been since forgotten. Not like your cell phone of today.
This is a very reliable workhorse. And its beauty can not be matched.
Thank you for looking.
