Extremely rare french desk telephone with second receiver unique to french telephones. Original design copied by Bell for their first cradle Telephone WE #202. Solid chrome dial and bands, Bakelite handsets, steel base.. This antique telephone is wired to work on standard modular jack. 

The Restoration Process

Dial – The dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. The outer edge of the dial has been stripped and polished to a beautiful chrome finish. 

Accents - All accents have been professionally nickel plated including: Receiver, cradle and receiver hook.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new brown cloth covered cords that are made in house on the same type of equipment originally used by the phone companies. They look amazing. The line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.

Shell – The shell has been stripped down and sandblasted using a glass grit and powder coated in a semi-gloss black finish. This closely resembles the finish on the original phone.

Handset – The Bakelite handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris out. It is then sanded through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit and buffed back to its beautiful original shine.

Base – The base is carefully sand blasted and rewrapped with brown felt to ensure it does not damage the table it proudly sits on.

The phone goes extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
