Western Electric 302 - Hammered Silver Finish eBay 180623846668

Anyone catch this from Don Woodbury? Hammered Steel Finish. Is it paint or a treatment to the metal. Looks great, ad doesn't really describe what the finish is. I would have done the side of the dial as well. I sent him a question. Still a stunner....Doug

         That is one nice looking phone. The Northern Elec. number plate with the balck digits realy adds to the look. 8) 8)   I refinished one similarly a while back but  it did not look anwhere as  nice as this one.

It's a paint finish.  You can get it in several colors (silver, black, bronze, etc) in rattle cans at most big home stores.  OPW does come up with some interesting phones.

From OPW,,,,

It's powdercoat. It does look really nice. We'll have a version in blue, and bronze as well.


I feel it should have been in the ad that its paint, but I guess that's just
 me and the Phones for sale Vendors....Doug
