Did some rearranging of the phone room. Moved some pictures to the stairwell leading into the phone room. Rearranged phones and hung some 3 slot payphones.

Wonderful. So much history down there, you could open to the public and have special guided tour days.

....but first, room for just one more Princess....  :)

Yes, she has already spoken, There is to be nothing to go beyond the stairwell.  ;)
I've heard that before, "Nothing goes beyond the basement" I made it to the stairwell!
Now to try and conquer the main floor!  :)

To celebrate all your work rearranging, here is a virtual Duff Beer (Avatar) on me.  :)

I really like that Bell four story display unit, what’s the story behind that? Is the Bell sign underneath part of the unit?

Wow thanks! It's now part of my screensaver!

The stand is a retail store stand from a now defunct Sears department store.
I picked it up from Habitat For Humanity ReStore for $50.00 CDN, $38.17 USD or 34.38 Euro in your case.
They had two, but I only had room for the one.
The Bell sign is from a phone booth and it just happen to fit the base.  :)

Beautiful set, these are one of my favorites. I just love the color, especially with a lot of light on them. The burled walnut is just so cool looking!

Any idea why the vast majority of these sets were black?...Doug

Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question.
