Art Deco Bakelite Kellogg Vintage Antique Telephone Picture and Description:

 185282207086280240 Art Deco Bakelite Kellogg Vintage Antique Telephone

Art Deco Kellogg Model 925 Masterphone Bakelite Telephone This wonderful Kellogg model 925 bakelite housing phone has been truly meticulously restored inside and out. Works and rings like it did over 70 years ago. You can receive and dial out calls with this phone. This phone is made out of solid bakelite. Not thermoplastic like the later Western Electric desk sets. Kellogg was established in 1897 in Highland Park IL and then moved to Chicago. The Kellogg family sold their controlling interests to ITT in 1951. Then the name was ITT Kellogg". Later ITT dropped the Kellogg name altogether, sometime in the 60’s. ITT was acquired by Alcatel, then acquired by Cortelco and known as Cortelco Kellogg. The name “Kellogg” has since been dropped from its name and the company is now known as Cortelco. I never use "Stock" photos. I always take photos of the actual phone I have for sale. Equipped with a beautiful numbers & letters "Z Operator" porcelain plate. Has a new AE narrow style numbercard in the center. The fingerwheel & dial center ring are nickle plated brass and nice! The dial has been renovated and pulses correctly at 10 pulses per second (bell system standard). One bell gong has a higher tone than the other one to produce a unique bell sound that only an old telephone can give you. I recorded the actual ring from this telephone so you can hear it. Click on the small phone below to hear the ring. 394 KB wave file This seldom seen phone is a very pretty example of mid 30s art deco. This phone is absolutely mint. No chips or cracks or repairs. These are hard to find without chips or cracks since the bakelite is so fragile. This phone has been called the "ashtray" phone because of the round cups on each side. No scratches, haze or roughness on this phone. This phone has been expertly restored. Check out my about page to learn more about my restorations. I really enjoy working on telephones & I spend many, many hours on each phone. I never take shortcuts or skip details to compromise the quality. I am a perfectionist. The extreme deco bakelite handset has been cleaned and polished back to it's original gloss. I never use clearcoats, paint or any other additive on my bakelite. Produced in the mid to late 1930s, this phone is an example of industrial design at it's peak! I guarantee this phone is complete, working and has all original parts. The inside of the phone is all original and complete with the original Kellogg ringer, induction coil and capacitor. I never use "Stock" photos. I always take photos of the actual phone I have for sale. I double box pack with bubble wrap & peanuts & I will assure you that your phone arrives to you safely.
