QuoteCLASSIC ROTARY PHONE LOVERS, this is what we were thinking: This phone was in sad and non-working order when we got it. We specialize in upcycling discarded items into something new and hopefully useful. We've left all the parts inside. No phone was seriously hurt in the making of this lamp. We took this vintage rotary dial phone and gave it a new life. There are battle scars inherent to both is age and unknown background. I have attempted to provide close ups so you know what you are buying.A new cord and in-line rotary switch controls the frosted C7 bulbs in the handset. The black spiral cord is original to the phone and hides a new gooseneck lamp pipe which keeps the handset suspended above the phone. The rotary dial works nicely.Bulbs included.
