I was bidding on a couple of them on ebay but let them go.

It seems that there has been a sudden spurt of these things.  Check out item 280406459492.  If someone would offer $350 for mine, I'll consider painting it ivory :).

The price is because it's not just any ol' phone, it's a "Deco" phone!

I'm waiting for an Art Nouveau phone.   Maybe one of those silver-mounted jobs?

The seller of the ivory Leich phone asked me for advice about how to list it.  I suggested that she identify it as a Leich desk phone that has been upgraded with a new network, and dial, and new cloth cords.  I also said that I had no idea what it is worth, but I doubted that anyone would pay more than $100 for it.  I also suggested that she clean an polish the finger wheel.

I love working with the circuit diagrams, and I guess this will be right.

Handle that Liech carefully.  The bakelite shell is thin under the metal cradle, and they tend to get a hairline crack on the upper back corners.  The components are itght fit inside as that is a really small phone.
I have one of those with an extended base for the bell.

Is it just me?  I can't see all the pictures or the right side of your post because they run off the page and there's no scroll bar.  Had to zoom way out to even see the reply button.  Anyway, nice phone.

try holding your "Control" key down while hitting the (zero) "0" key. That should put your view back into perspective.
