Parts For This Phone
The Western Electric 102/202 series telephones were the first widely distributed phones which adopted the use of a single handset rather than a separate transmitter and receiver.

The original "B" mount was available from 1928-1930 and is characterised by a round base and raised dial. In 1930 the "B" mount was modified to give it an an elongated ovoid base. This revised mounting scheme was known as "D" mount. The dial on the "D" chassis was recessed into the front of the phone as opposed to sitting on the frame as with the "B" mount". Model "D" telephones were manufactured until 1938. They are often mistakenly called a Model 202 but this is actually a misnomer as "202" refers to a wiring scheme that that was used on both "B" and "D" mount telephones.

During 1951, in celebration of their 75th anniversary, Western Electric brought out the "Imperial" version of their venerable "B" mount. Although the phone was long out of production at that time, Western Electric recycled existing "B" mounts by giving them either a gold or silver finish, and pairing them with an F series ivory handset.

This Imperial 202 is been upgraded with a modern network in the base that eliminates the need for a separate subset. We have installed a cloth covered modular line to facilitate connection to your phone line.

Due to space limitations in the chassis, there is no ringer in this phone, although external ringers are available.

Optional Dials for the 202

Number 6 - Default - The last technology jump for 3 inch dials. A smooth return and light weight for dialing highlight this choice. It is sturdily built and very realiable.

Number 5 - The predominant dial of the 40's and 50's was replaced by the number 6 for a more univeral fit. The number 5 dial features a "whiir" sound upon its return and a good weight for dialing.
