Telephone Dial Ring Northern Electric
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:17:53 PM »
I think the number ring I just listed on ebay is a Northern Electric Translucent ring. Years ago I collected these sets and I had two that lit up. I sold them many years ago. I think the ring I just listed on ebay is one of those light up rings.

Bad link. I get an eBay "edit your listing" screen when I click on it.

Isn't that a North bezel, not Northern?

Maybe, I can't remember and I don't have the phones any more. I bought two phones and they may have been North that had 110 cords coming out of them like starlites. One was canary yellow the other was white. When you plugged them in they lit up the dial rings. The ring on eBay is like the rings on those sets. I have never seen the ones with the light up since. I do know who I sold them to some maybe I can track one down.

Somewhere around Dallas is a Red North 500 set with WE/SC/ITT dial on it. I saw it at an antique mall in North Dallas, but didn't pick it up (since I figured my chances of finding a correct dial/ring were impossible). Last time I was there (about a year ago before my parents moved), it was gone...
