My leather phone has started to generate noise, just like some older phones with electronics.

Do you have any experience with problemslike that?
If I change all the electrolytic capacitors, cold I be quit sure of a proper working telephone?

I have the same problem with my "Lillehammer" Olympic telephone.

dsk,

What sort of noise?  My 1989 NT "Solo" phone has a 60Hz hum, though it does not have an AC input to it.  I stopped using it because people on the other end of phone calls were complaining to me about the noise.

It is well done.  It also reminds me of the battleship camouflage the Brits used in WWI.

This phone is hideous, and must get dirty from all the holding it goes through. It's not even a real rotary phone. This phone is worthy of incinerating

Wow! there are more than ten of them available.  That means that at least ten of us can have one  :-*, so no fighting over them.

It looks like a cross between a Tribble and a phone. 

Going on my Christmas list! ;)

Perhaps someone could convince the craigslist lady in WI (re: http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=1645.0) to turn those phones into clocks.

I see that style come up every once in a while on E-Bay.  That one deserves to be turned into a lamp!
