That phone is sure a mess, but people will be bidding on it for the very rare brown AE handset.  I wouldn't be surprised if it ends over $100.

Larry agreed...the Mahogany AE looks brand new. I saw it come on and was sad there was no BIN....Doug

Not a bad price for a HTF handset like that.  The buyer did good.

I feel really sorry for this one... a true piece of art destroyed, probably many years ago...
And the seller seem to think he sells the 8th wonder of the world... 165€!

Was it originally designed for the unique "coronet" style handset?

It was a Thomson-Houston phone. Same cradle as this one:

They are not extremely rare, but not that common and particularly beautiful.
