I'd say the phone, it's only a matter of time before someone dropped it down the throne... ;D

I have actually seen one of these installed in a house I did work in. Outside of the throne-phone, everything else was pink, even the paper! looking back I should have taken a picture and or taken a test drive  :D

I once bought a house with all brown bathroom fixtures

Every time I used the deep big bathtub or did my business there the phone would ring.

I put a touch tone brown Contempora on the wall.

it was a perfect match for the brown bathroom fixtures

I got this o  ebay and will have it in my hands soon , maybe to install in my current bathrroom as it seems every time I bathe again the phone rings. So it is going here....

Nice phone for good price with reasonable justification. You should put it up for find of the month.

I remember when those things were the thing for them who had everything.  They have made a steady march through the thrift stores ever since.

As it turns out the ITT Trendline is from 1995 from what I can tell, not really that old . I opened it and it is nothing like an older trimline inside. It looks like ITT reverted back to something more like the traditional looking design. As I recall in the late 80s I think these things all had redial buttons on them . The handset weighs about half of a 1980s rotary trimline.

What I did get a great deal on was not vintage but a great test tool.

The original WE Trimline/ITT Trendline/S-C Slenderet/Northern Contempra had a recall button, not a redial.

Recall momentarily opens tip and ring, either to flash the C.O. (call waiting, 3-way calling) or for positive disconnect (to make another call without having to use the switchhook).

Redial usually refers to "last number dialed."

ITT I thought followed the AT&T design changes.
