Nothing beats an avocado green rotary phone! The sound of the ring is classic, and the feel of the receiver in your hand will take you back to the days before cordless phones. This phone is in working condition and has a volume control knob in the handle.

Condition: This phone has a few condition problems, but for the most part looks great and would a welcome addition to any vintage home. Three of the corners have been repaired. They’re solid now, but the repairs left some damage to the plastic casing. There is also some loss of shine to the finish in the top of the receiver and in a few other places. It shines up nicely with Liquid Gold, but it should be noted that the plastic finish has some wear.

History: The Western Electric model 500 telephone series was the standard desk-style domestic telephone set issued by the Bell System in North America from late 1949 through the 1984 Bell System divestiture. Due to the markings on the bottom I believe this phone is from 1975.

Marking: There are all sorts of markings on this phone, including the last phone number to use it! This is a Wisconsin Telephone Company phone.
