Design Line Series - "Noteworthy" Wall Mount Phone.
« on: December 06, 2009, 05:27:01 AM »
That's really a Trimline phone, not a Princess phone like they say, but whatever.  That's an interesting wall mount.

Another from Bell's Design Line that came out in the 1970s and '80s.  The cork board is reversible, and there's a chalkboard on the other side.  The big honking hole on the other edge, opposite the phone, is where you keep your phone book.

It was part of the Design Line series and was called the Noteworthy. I have a Sculptura (aka donut phone)

Kyle:
Can you take these apart for cleaning and maintenance like the old WE500s?

Yes, they can be opened. I have never opened mine because I'm scared  I won't get it back together. 500s are easier to work with. If you look at the BSP I linked, you can see how they crammed it all together.

I recently took apart and cleaned a brown donut phone just like that, for a friend that I think I've got "hooked" on collecting telephones.  I got all of the components out except the dial.  It looks like it's "glued" in, and I didn't mess with it.  I was able to just take off the fingerwheel and clean it and the dial plate.  If you keep track of where everything goes, it goes back together nicely.
