This PHONE IS from my relatives in Italy it is 50 years old and it works. can anyone tell me if it is worth $47. thats the shipping cost any input appreciated.IMG-20200718-WA0001.jpg
This is Northern Electric's Contempra phone, NE's more deluxe counterpart to the Trimline phone. I think it is worth about $47.00.
These were also made in Ireland. A photo of underneath should give you manufacturer info.
Can anyone please tell me what was the ringtone sound on this phone.

What makes the ringing pause between rings on incoming calls on this northern telecom phone from Europe? Is the telecom or a function of the phone itself?.
The ring cadence comes from a ring generator at the central office or from the PBX.
Thanks very much to everyone for all your input. This forum is a big help because of the great wealth of knowledge you all have with years of experience
The cadence for the UK is 400ms on - 200ms off - 400ms on - 2s off. For the US it's 2s on - 4s off; this cadence is also often used on UK PABX systems for an "internal" call.
