Hey Doug:

Are those "Character Phones" that look like a chair, a lamp, a TV etc the older rotary models or are they Touch Tone?

Doug as I've said before, that is one beautiful collection of telephones and related items.  Every time I look at those photos---after some time has passed "I spy" something different that I'd love to have in my collection.  This time I Spy those nice colored Stromberg Carlson 1212 Fatboys.  Fantastic!

Are there TWO 334A subsets on that shelf? 
Wow, Doug!  So many HTF and awesome phones in your collection!  I love the SC 1212 phones in COLOR as well!  Awesome Kellogg phones too--I recently obtained a Kellogg 900 VERY reasonably on eBay.  I still need to fine an ivory Kellogg phone for the random, white Kellogg dial blank I bought years ago.  Haha.  It was...wishful thinking, I guess?  Ah, the Pearch Telephone Company...come back...

Its January again, and every January I take new pictures of my collection. Some new phones have come to stay while others have left for new collections to sit in....Happy New Year....Doug

If there is a nicer display of beautiful phones, anywhere, I sure haven't seen it.  What a great collection, Doug!  And I say that every time I see your photos.

Yow!, Doug, you've got a seriously impressive collection there, and some of those are seriously rare.

So I have a pesky question. That yellow and orange Kellogg 1000, what's the history of that one?

Doug
 I notice that your collection is looking a bit cramped and probably takes a lot of effort with dustin' and polishin'. I'll do you a favour and save you some work by taking the aqua 302 off your hands - won't even charge you ;)

Doug, those pictures would make a great jigsaw puzzle.  I think there are places that you can send in your own photo to have a puzzle manufactured.  Phone collectors may like something like that.  You'll be rich!  (I get 10% for the idea). :)
