Thanks Doug;
Here's another that was done with a TEENY bit of black pigment in snow-white resin. You guys have never seen these examples because they were "one-offs", and weren't around long.

Very beautiful looks like it is made of marble!

Quote from text
original vintage transparent telephone as pictured. I believe that these have since been remade, but this is an original phone from 1985.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These have been remade using original molds With clear plastic. I the guts of these are original guts.
This particular phone may have the repro-plastics. I think the original plastics were clearer but I am not sure.
>Edit to add<
The remade sets have a newer transmitter than the originals. I think 1 of the transmitters are gray and the other one red. I don't recall which is the newer type.

These come up for sale regularly in the UK. 175 is expensive. Prices in the region of 75 (or less) are more usual.

I picked up one of these a couple of years ago for about 7. The chap selling had a 'best offer' option on it and I suspect had not set it up properly as I offered the opening price and got an immediate acceptance (either that or he had no idea what he was selling).
It's a nice thing, but as @FABphones said they are not very rare as they were remade in reasonable numbers.
