Amazing Two Tone - Western Electric 202

 This wonderful working example of 1920s design is sure to fit into your period decorating scheme. This Two toned Western Electric 202 has one of our painted Olive Green shells, which really makes the black pieces pop out. It's an extremely stylish revisionist take on the classic 202 look.

Although the 202 was never produced in this two toned fashion, we think you'll agree, it should have been. This 202 is been upgraded with a modern network in the base that eliminates the need for a separate subset. Due to space limitations in the chassis, there is no ringer internally, although external ringers are readily available. The handset is the venerable F-1 model that is acoustically superior to the older E series handset that was introduced in the 1920s.
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.

Number 4 - This is the first 5 contact, 3 inch dial. The real joy of the dial lies in the highly sought after "clickity-clack" sound that was eilinated with the introduction of the number 5. What was eliminated from cutsomer complaints, is now one of the features that  collectors look for most in hunting out the vintage phones.
