Doug,
Were the brown handsets originally painted for special order color sets(antique bronze, pewter, etc.)?  I have never had the pleasure of seeing one in person.  They look very nice when presented this way.

Stephen...these were always painted by WE for their color sets. I found this painted and with no chips or cracks. The paint preserved that wonderful Bakelite sheen just waiting to see the light of day.

Looks like a Easter chocolate for phone collectors ....Doug
