Here is an  Automatic Electric monophone telephone. Its a  Crystal Clear AE34 and its a beautiful working phone.

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.

The 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.   If you look closely you will see that we even  nickel plated the bells for you. We  have included a New old stock Extensi cord for your handset cord. These are beautifully braided cords and this one has its original tag.

 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 .

 We have painstakenly created  this wonderful 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 .

  It is in beautiful condition with no shrinkage or other problems. You might say it is just like a new telephone. Many of the bakelite phones in collections have deteriorated.

We strongly feel that the Crystal Clear body on this telephone will be just as perfect decades from now.

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. 

 We can make any color just for you, just ask us.  


  Now you can have this as the showpiece in your collection. 

  Insurance is included in shipping.
