Collector's Corner / My Long Distance Shade
« Last post by Doug Rose on Today at 09:13:12 AM »
Doug...I am at work, but this is the shade.  I cannot crop this pic. I will take pictures when I get home. it was made by Fenton and still has the Fenton label on it. Repro? Probably but made by Fenton. I would rather have this for $175 than  pay big bucks for a poor looking original. Imagine the original with the light on!....Doug

Good for you, Fab...

When you perform your magic on that burled brown finish, it will be stunning!

Can't wait to see the results....

I have one made by Fenton just before they went out of business. Got it new in a box for $175. It is perfect. I agree with Doug this spotted and faded. I have never seen one do that. Just my humble opinion....other Doug

Doug,

Can you take some close up pictures of yours and post them to compare them? Start another thread?

Early start to the day today. Got it! 25 (approximately 22, Canadian dollar $37, US dollar $28).

Even nicer than the pics. Lovely smooth Bakelite finish that I think will clean up beautifully. Not a spot of paint to be seen.

Covered in thick dust and quite grubby. All levers in good condition (these are often the first part to break), they will need attention as a few are stiff. Nicotine crust to mouthpiece, endcaps refuse to move. Dial turns but is a tad slow.

Apart from some fraying to cable around mouse hole, all cables original and in good condition. Metal terminal box still attached.

Pleased to find no damage to any part of the phone.

Lots to do today so I can allocate some uninterrupted time to this phone. Will update with pics.

Thanks all. Am pleased I got this.  :)

Awesome, It should look great all cleaned up and in your collection. It never hurts to keep an open mind.
It's like getting an ugly dog. it's not about how he looks but rather how he makes you feel. LOL

In paul-f's third picture, there appears to be some sort of cover over one of the ringer gongs.  What is the purpose of that?  If it is there to muffle the sound from the ringer, that would not seem to make sense if the purpose of that phone model was to amplify the sound through the receiver.
