"I don't know if you found out whether the colour was the same as the 8746 in the end but if it is, I have some ABS that came from this phone if you need it"

     and

"It was sent in a thin, oversized cardboard box with no packaging whatsoever."

I just received 4 telephones, her is how they were sent.

It is just luck that the bakelite telephone was unharmed, the other ones has less brittle plastics, but even the red cobra came with an unharmed dial plate.

No way :o !!!   Amazed they made it undamaged.

Would love to see them photographed out of the box - start a thread for them?   :)

Ugh.   Sad day for me.   I got a Blue/Gold Celebrity on eBay.   i've wanted this combination for a while, but haven't seen one.   And sadly, it arrived shattered.

The seller took efforts to protect it.   The phone was wrapped in bubble wrap and surrounded by crumpled newspaper.   However, IMHO, the box was too big and allowed for too much movement.  The base appeared to be almost completely upside down when I removed it in pieces.
