Didn't think I'd live long enough to see this phone called "antique" but I guess I have. Love having this Western Electric with me as it was one of the first phones I grew up with. Thank you, it's awesome.
WESTERN ELECTRIC model 5302
Here is an original antique Western Electric desk telephone that has been restored and it fully works. It was patented in the 1940s by Western Electric and features an F1 handset.
It was made after the 302 telephone so Western Electric could use up all of its spare parts from the earlier 302 model.
Everything about it says 302 except for the casing. It has the same feet, the same ringer and F1 handset.
The finish on this beautifully restored telephone is supreme.Then the telephone was polished to make this beauty look better than new. Its heavy bakelite handset has been buffed and polished to a beautiful luster. It has a brown cloth woven wall line cord .The line cord has a modular end so all you have to do is plug it in and enjoy and listen to its beautiful ring.
It has the leather bottom feet which are in good condition . You can receive calls dial out and use this fully functioning antique. Imagine what your guests will say when this see this beautiful phone from the past.
