Fantastic Automatic Electric Type 40 Desk Phone - Custom Yellow with Chrome Trim!!!
This wonderful working example of 1930s design is sure to fit into your period decorating scheme. The RRRING of this classic is unlike anything available in modern phones, and it is will definitely get the attention of everyone within your household!
The Automatic Electric Type 40 Monophone was introduced in 1938. This combined phone includes all the components required to operate with in the casing, eliminating the need for an external network subset and ringer. It will operate on modern telephone lines. This particular Type 40 has been refinished in Yellow. We have used a product called Polane that is very resitant to chipping or cracking. This product has been applied using using the very same materials and procedures implemented by the actual phone manufacturers of yesteryear.
The AE40 is a graceful example of art deco design. These rugged phones were made of solid bakelite and were available in a variety of colours with various trim options. Although AE never made a yellow Type 40, we think they should have and hope you will agree.
My Favorite part about this phone is its Chrome trim. We have added a chrome "pickup" bar and matching fingerwheel. The handset is beautifully highlighted by Chrome caps on both ends. The phone has been fully refurbished, and is in excellent working condition. The dial has been lubricated and timed to ensure that it will give years of trouble free service.
As a finishing touch, a new matching cloth covered handset cord, and a modular line cord has been added to this classic. All components have been fully overhauled and tested to ensure that they will function properly both now, and in the years to come.
This wonderful piece of history carries a one year parts and labour warranty subject to our standard terms and conditions.
This is a great opportunity to own a fantastic piece of fully functional classic technology.
