Mid Century mechanical Pop up button operated telephone and address directory, with gift advertising plate from Wilmington DE Blue Print Service. Dark brown plastic with cream plastic buttons and a red button to close it. Push a button and it springs open to the corresponding letter's entries. Two letters per button.

If you're a Wilmington DE collector, you'll enjoy finding the phone numbers to local businesses and masonic places. But best of all, you'll find the phone number to the Charcoal Pit! (Love the Charcoal Pit, especially that ice cream cake!) The numbers are in pencil and have been meticulously erased and new names added. So you can also erase if you wish and put your own names and numbers. (But leave the Charcoal Pit)

Approx 7" across and a little under up and down. No cracks, some scratches, and it's dusty around the buttons, can use detailing to bring it back to its former glory!

The advertising plate reads:

"Friendship Endures" Wilmington Blue Print Service, Phones 7483 and 5 1207. (This goes back!) Questions, please just ask! Other great items here at anyoldtime.etsy.com
