That went fast...

In reality, the only thing that was damaged was the transmitter cup, and that's easily fixable. The only other thing could be the Bulldog transmitter, and that's replaceable for $10.00.

How much would a working #2 dial be worth? (Just curious.)

They go for around $100 in decent shape.

A phone phanatic since I was less than 2 (thanks to Fisher Price); collector since a teenager; now able to afford to play!
Favorite Phone: Western Electric Trimline - it just feels right holding it up to my face!

I've been thinking about this phone. How cool would it be to install a '30s era light fixture to a candlestick scissors mount, but a candlestick wouldn't be attached at the same time? It would be interesting to mount a painted pipe to the clamp (or in this case, the four screws that attach to the phone stem), and mount the light to that!

I almost p*ssed myself laughing when I saw that photo.  Thanks for that Fabius.  The phone is bad enough but the real atrocity here is the busts of Curly, Larry, and Moe.   ;D

Telephones made into lamps are so much in demand and with the prices skyrocketing they are now making reproduction telephone lamps. So when you're buying your next telephone lamp be carefully.
