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.

Well, it's still out there, for sale, in case you thought you might have missed it. But the seller seems confused. Original listing was $35 plus $15 shipping. First re-list was at $25 plus $15. Second re-list was at $25 plus 15. But the 4th re-list is a BIN at $45 plus $15 shipping or Best Offer.  :-\

The seller just realized that the item is older now then when he first posted it and thus more valuable.

You could be right.  The long skinny shape of the bulb plus the way the filament is shaped does make it different from the other lamps.

Haven't gone through the eBay listing for some time. Was surprised, well, not really, to have found 4 new, unique atrocities. Here's the first of four.

We've all seen phones made into lamps, but this one is a new twist.    The subscriber set "porch light".    Link to list :  http://r.ebay.com/SznGtg
Item description says it needs rewiring because if it's plugged in it will give the person a "shock".     Can't understand why that would happen.

I am sure some people will be shocked even without any electricity. :o :o

My thoughts exactly. I found it shocking just looking at the picture on my iPad and it isn't my iPad at fault.....it runs on 5VDC.

This is clearly a very early version of a mushroom phone.  There was no dial to illuminate, so the entire part of the room near the phone was lit instead...... ;)
