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 Ivory.We have used a two part acrylic process that is very resistant to chiping or cracking.

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. This phone is based upon the original deep red color original produced by Automatic Electric.

My Favorite part about this phone is its Brass trim. We have added a chrome "pickup" bar to this classic. The brass really shows off the rich ivory color. 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 brown 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.
