Is it under the dome or is the dome a part of it? Got pictures?

It looks pretty much like the images Doug posted. The ringer is what makes the phone a 1191 and it all appears to be incorporated into the dome.

I haven’t taken any of it apart yet. Due to the fragility of these I’m only going to do it the once when I start to clean it all down.

I will post some Clear sc photos later tonite
Jim
I am having trouble transferring my photos. I will download them at work and post with comments tomorrow.
-----------------------
Harry, I don't think I have posted any of these photos before, however my clear fat boy is in the  one in one of Kate Dooner's book.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Regarding the auction contest set. I was outbid on it, and  it had a lot of shrinkage.
The seller stated that SC salesmen could special order the clear sets as a marketing tool.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pretty much all of the non-black SC sets of this vintage is subject to shrinkage and distortion.
If you cast a perfect replacement cap, it probably wont fit right, but it is a good start point.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There aren't very many clear SC sets that still exist.  And among those few clear sets  there are several  different models  .
 Any of these sets are very hard to find
 This particular phone is a exceptional example of a clear SC .

Here are the ones I own.
the 1212 is pretty good, on the other two, one has a bad handset and the other is missing plastic from the base.

Good news.

I have been contacted by the seller - they found the missing endcap. They have kindly promised to forward it on to me.

I’ll update this thread when it has arrived.
