History

Stromberg Carlson followed up on the 1453 (basically an evolved 1243) with the last of their own designs, the 1553. This was SC's answer to the famous Western Electric 554. In fact, the 1553 is often referred to as the "sloped" 554. Soon after this model was introduced, Stromberg Carlson followed the lead of Kellogg and started producing model 554's under license. 

 

The Restoration Process

Dial – The dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service.   We have also added new looking finger wheel, die cut dial card and acetate.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new vinyl cords and the line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.

Shell –  The plastic shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This ensures that there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is them carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the plastic with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally we apply a three step plastic restoration compound. This leaves the plastic with a beautiful high gloss finish. 

Handset – The handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris. It is then sanded with the same process as the shell and buffed back to its beautiful original shine.
