Classic Black Desk Phone


The Classic Black Desk Phone. My my, retro is so passe, isn’t it? What, we cracked that joke already? Hmm..OK. So anyway, forget about all the sleek chrome miniaturisation sweeping the globe, the only way to declare your love of the past is to buy one of these repro 1930’s phones and display it prominently next to your iPod dock. The fake push button rotary dial really doesn’t do it for us, although it does have a real bell. $45.00.

 Crosley’s Kettle Classic Desk Phone captures the essence of the classic 1930’s European-style telephone. This beauty was originally cast in a heavy duty metal and then later reconditioned in a lightweight thermoplastic giving it a more stylistic approach and curved design. The Kettle Classic Desk Phone successfully combines industrial technology with design-inspired craftsmanship right down to the classic cloth cord.
