Mottled Green ATM Deskset
« on: October 11, 2021, 02:40:56 AM »
This beauty just sold on eBay for a pretty price - £3877.77 - circa $5300
I wonder if it was a one-off special as I've certainly not seen another in this unusual colour.

"Unusual old ATM green marbled bakelite extension telephone.
It has not been converted so is untested and the cord is frayed in places, there is a small nick to the top of the handpiece as shown in the 9th photo and it has discoloured slightly as the green is a little more vibrant under the handset as shown in the last photo.
Please see photos to aid description.
Great vintage piece, would look lovely in a period property or ideal as film / TV prop."

It would be nice to know itís history.  :)

Wonder how that effect was done in the mold, I canít quite work it out, especially as in some areas it all but matches up against itís parts. I didnít think to ask for photos of the inside, it would have been interesting to see how it carried through (or not  :o) but certainly looks like it does from the image of the handset damage.
