Now then I have to say, I love the retro possibilities with this device. It’s an old wall mounted phone that you’d expect to see in any American Diner worth it’s salt. And they do like their salt in America.
This unit is a very reasonable £59.99 from The Contemporary Home.
Here’s the description:
This American 3-slot style payphone was first introduced in the 1950s and remained virtually unchanged until 1965. Features pushbutton technology with authentic rotary look, wall or desk mountable with heavy-duty ABS cabinet and chrome accents, full-featured coin bank with lock and key and ringer control.
Just to be clear, this is a fully working telephone supplied with a BT adaptor ready to plug in.
For all the times I use a telephone at home these days, I reckon this would be brilliant for the kitchen!
