This is a stunning example of the telephones of the 1930s. Pre WWII. During the depression. This particular phone has a rare handset. This is a “seamless” E1 handset with a “spit cup”. All of the phones of this era had to have a seperate bell box. If you had a phone in your home in the 30s (depression era), you were probably the only one in the neighborhood. Telephones were considered a luxury item. Luxury and depression did not go together.

I am currently selling this phone on eBay. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me directly or go to the ebay link above. Thanks!
