Product Description

 Here is a very nice original  Automatic Electric Monophone A1  cradle telephone that was manufactured  in the 1920s. This particular phone is Mahagany bakelite. Mahogany was one of the colors you could special order back then.

This rather pristine  telephone is rare because most of these did not have 24Kt  gold hardware   Many had painted brass bands and some ebay sellers like to polish the brass handset bands which was never original. 

  This is a very good example of art deco. The stylish bakelite Type 38 handset  with the spitcup has had its  24KT gold plated bands . The finger wheel has 24Kt gold plating as as well. All bakelite has been   polished to a high gloss. There is no damage or issues with this rather pristine phone.

We have been restoring antique telephones for 18 years and we love what we do and it shows.

    NOTE: You can order this phone with a black braided extensicord  for the handset. If you want this braided extensicord add $85 to auction price once auction ends. These extensi cords are very much sought after.
