Here is an Automatic Electric monophone telephone. Crystal Clear Western Electric 302 telephones were shown at he 1937 Worlds Fair. The Automatic Electric AE34 Monophone was not, but this is how it would have looked if it was. Much more beautiful than a 302. Much more stylish and much more Art Deco. AE34 was one of the first self contained working phones made. It has the single plunger. The fancy handset bands, plunger and finger wheel assembly all have fresh nickel plating. If you look closely you will see that we even nickel plated the bells for you. We have included a New old stock Extensi cord for your handset cord. These are beautifully braided cords and this one has its original tag. These are very heavy phones and were never made cheap like the telephones are today. There is nothing like the looks, feel and weight of art deco telephone telephones from the past. The original ringer produces a wonderful sound that is seldom heard. We have been restoring antique telephones for 18 years and we love what we do. Most of the AE34 were made in black. There were 8 other colors made besides black and they are very rare desk sets and pretty much unobtainable. All are in the hands of serious collectors who will never let loose of them and who could blame them. These phones are a thing of beauty and extremely rare. We have painstakenly created this wonderful work of art with a Crystal Clear body and handset out of a special heavy duty plastic. It has the same look and feel of bakelite and the same weight. It will not deteriorate as the bakelite does. Many of these phones in collections have shrunk or have other issues. Decades from now this Art deco telephone will remain the same. Very few of these will be made and we have sincere hope and belief that they go up in value. It is in beautiful condition with no shrinkage or other problems. You might say it is just like a new telephone. Many of the bakelite phones in collections have deteriorated. We strongly feel that the Crystal Clear body on this telephone will be just as perfect decades from now. Included is a nice braided Extensicord handset cord. We have several other colored AE34 desksets that are for sale including a Chinese Red AE34 and a Ivory AE34. We also have a Royal Blue AE34 for sale also. We can make any color just for you, just ask us. Now you can have this as the showpiece in your collection.
