The Restoration Process

Dial – Dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. The outer edge of the dial has been given a nickel plated band to match the telephone. The number plate has been cleaned and a perfectly matching overlay has been applied. The finger wheel and dial card ring have been freshly nickel plated finish. A brand new die cut dial card and acetate cover has been added as well.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new cloth covered brown 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 professionally nickel plated and will not peel like most home plating. The mirror finish is absolutely stunning and will last a lifetime.

Receiver & Mouthpiece – The original bakelite receiver & mouthpiece have been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris out. They are then sanded through a 4 step process (400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit) and buffed back to its beautiful original shine. These bakelite pieces are close to 100 years old and look absolutely beautiful. 

Network - We have updated this telephone with a modern internal network that eliminates the use of a subset. This internal network also features a built in electronic ringer to enunciate incoming calls. We do have external bell ringers or subset available at your request.

Base – The base has been sand blasted and sealed with a clear coat to prevent rusting.It is then rewrapped with super soft pig skin suede leather 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.
