Robs Collection
« on: April 20, 2018, 08:29:29 AM »



Hello everyone My name is Rob, I have been collecting phones for over 20 years. I find it thrilling and love to look and touch the telephones I own. Sadly, most are in storage as Im in between moves right now. Also I live in two parts of the world so my collection is a little spread out however within the year I will have it all together and post updated photos. as I am able to have more room.  For now I am staying in a small 3 bedroom condo so Im not able to have much room to show off my phones. however, I do keep some choice pieces on display on my shelf.  I would normally never post anything so reveling however this forum has helped me so much in my collecting and enthusiasm and I also remember when I was newer collector I loved to look at photos of collections as I dreamed one day to own them which I have pretty much done so I have some rare pieces. and some plain jane phones I do love color the AEs are by far my favorite I know I know WE is where its at. but even the hardest core WE collector cannot say that the AEs are so sexy and sleek sometimes they take my breath away. Well here is a photo. I will post some more as Im able to arrange them thank you

Agreed.WOW! Quite a nice collection of color AE's. Love the orchid! That top shelf does not look like AE stuff. That can't be WE, can it?

Very impressive what 20 years of collecting can yield. Very colorful. I like your mirrored shelving. The use of risers on the shelves to give the display varied dimensions is something I am working on with my display in the past couple of weeks.

A lot of goodies in a small space, nicely done!

Thank you I also like the shelfing. however, in the US where there are much more choices I love the barrister bookcases. it provides cover and is also antique.

It is a cool shot!...but those phones on the edge makes me nervous! Glad it wasn't a windy day!

Do you have every color AE 35? Beautiful!
