The Stromberg Carlson 1243 is a great example of 1940's design. Introduced as a direct competitor to the Western/Northern Electric 302, the 1243 also has a similar physical design. Like the 302, the 1243 contains the ringer and induction coil within the phone thereby eliminating the need for a separate subscriber set or bell box that was common in earlier phones. The RRRING of this phone is a real attention grabber that will bring back memories of yesteryear!

Stromberg Carlson was a major telephone manufacturer located in Rochester, New York. They produced not only subscriber sets, but also telephone switching equipment, and home electronics such as radios and televisions. This Model 1243 was manufactuered in 1951. It has a diecast metal housing that has received a new high gloss finish to restore the phone to it's original appearance. The bakelite handset has been lovingly buffed to bring out the original high-gloss shine, and the dial has been meticulously overhauled to ensure that it will give years of troublefree service. We have added a deluxe brass trim set to this phone highlighted by the handset caps and brass fingerwheel. We feel this really shows off the art deco inspired design of this phone. As a finishing touch a new cloth covered line and handset cord have been added to this classic. This phone has been completely tested and is ready to plug into modern phone lines.
