This classic teal 500 desk phone is the perfect accompaniment to our Turquoise Gift Pack:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/84613110/the-turquoise-gift-set-vintage-cookbooks

The Model 500 telephone series was the standard desk-style domestic telephone set designed by the firm of industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss, the product of several years of research and testing, and introduced in 1949 and issued by the Bell System in North America from late 1949 through to 1984.

Despite some cosmetic flaws (such as a touch of UV yellowing) and dings (see pictures), this phone still looks great and yes, if functions perfectly. The body is stamped ITT while the handset is marked "Northern Electric". While we're all familiar with the ubiquitous curly handset cord, a unique, uncommon feature of this phone is the curly line cord.

The approximate weight of the full set is just over 4-1/2 lbs. or 2 kg, not including packaging, hence the additional shipping costs but please convo us for an accurate shipping quote to your location -- and yes, we do ship internationally.

Save on shipping costs by combining this with other items from our store. If you're in Toronto and would like to pick this up in person to save on the shipping, please enter in the coupon code LOCALPICKUP when checking out. Local buyers can also pay with cash -- simply select "Other" as the payment type.
