Not sure whether this one qualifies as a worst picture or item not as described.

I present to you, a Classic Style Art Deco Telephone.........

Did Art design that one personally?

That phone was actually designed by Art's great-grandson, Arthur Deco III :).

Here's a great picture. Not sure what it is a picture of. The strange part is this is his main picture but he has a few decent pictures in the listing. Listed as "Very old wind up phone".

Looks like they are winding it up over their head.

I hope they're talking about a magneto telephone.  If not, it must be a type of toy telephone I've never seen!

That's a great picture of the crank in fast forward.
That really catches the detail very very well.... Not so much

Hey, that's one of those new hairbrush phone's!! I've heard that you can brush your hair at the same time your talking to your boss to call in sick. I think it's more geared to those lady's out there, or the hippy throw back types with long hair.
I've seen them for a better price though...
