This is a beautiful black Western Electric 354 wall phone. This model is the wall version of the 302 that you see from time to time. This model was made for relatively a short time compared to other models, so a lot less common than the table 302.

This one has been cleaned and polished inside and out. The 5H dial was disassembled and cleaned, oiled where needed so that it turns just like the day it came out, the face plate is in beautiful condition. As you can see from the pictures the interior has also been thoroughly cleaned down to the screws. The F1 Bakelite handset comes with the original cord and is great shape. The phone has been tested and has no issues dialing.

Really a very unusual version of this phone. The bells as you can see are nickel plated in this one instead of the brass that are commonly found in phones of this era. Also at some point this phone was modified with a kill switch on the side for the ringer. So when you get tired of hearing that phone ring, flip a switch and problem solved. It does not shut the phone off, just the ringer. Shut off has also been tested and works with no problem.

There are a couple issues with the housing thus the lower then normal cost. There are cracks in two of the corners. I have glued and sanded these and don't see them being a problem but wanted to make sure all were aware.

Beautiful phone and ready to go, again this was tested and works great. I will include a new modular plug with the phone, so it's ready to plug in and go.
