If you are looking for a box and just a box for a WE 554 telephone there is one on eBay for $25 and the shipping is free.  I mention it because paying that much for a empty cardboard box just seems absurd to me.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/311214743258

If you can't get the link to work, just log on to eBay and search for a vintage 1957 Western Electric Collectible empty box for Model 554 wall telephone.  I don't care what the message says about it being taken down.  It is there and has two weeks to go as I am writing this.

<edit> I fixed the link. It was one of those HUGE ebaY links that is 4 rows long but part of it didnt copy over. All that is ever needed on any ebay link is the 12 digit item number after the ebay.com/itm/ to make it work. Just chop the rest out and toss it! Terry <end of edit>
