1920’s Boudoir Rotary Telephone

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This wonderful French style boudoir telephone was made by the Danish manufacturer Aktieselskab Kjobenhavns Telefon in the 1920’s. The phone has a solid and heavy brass body that was painted gold over the original cream color. The cradle and ringer are made of polished brass with a wooden handle. Indeed, the fantastic Miss Mae West had a phone of this very same type.
