I understand what you mean but without the phone in hand, can't begin to imagine which terminals they are.

If the owner wants to try and hook it up to a working "POTS" line, she will have to work with you connections.

Thanks for all your replies.


I had no idea this was a working thing. This is SO COOL!!

We don't currently have a phone line or use one in the house. When I picked this up, it was at the end of a yard sale and was being given away for free. I thought it was really cool so I grabbed it.

Let me know if you guys want me to take any more detailed pictures of the inside and I would be happy to post them.

I think we're going to get this hung up on the wall in our den. Definitely love this piece!  :)


You got a good deal. I do not remember what it sold for but most likely over $100.00
