To be fair, thought I would start a thread about lamp phones that were entirely reversible.  I've found one so far, a candlestick I found on Goodwill Online:
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Here is one I acquired a while back:

Early 20B with "Hershey's Kiss" perch and knurled thumbscrew

Screw shaft

Wooden Base

Cast Iron stem bolt

Came with a broken Chicago receiver that had a "CHICAGO TELEPHONES SATISFY" cap.  I just sold it on eBay for $48.  That makes the grand total $254.51.  Much more reasonable.

Indeed seems a lot more useful as a lamp than as a phone. :-)
