This vintage toy telephone set is made by the Yugoslavian toy company Mehanotehnika and is know as the Sweet Plum Inter-Com Telephone Set.

There are two phones with rotary dials that connect to each other via a 30 ft cord. They are lavender color with a decal that reads Sweet Plum and a decal of a young girl. When dialed, the little red light on the front lights up and buzzes. They take 2 D batteries (not included). I tried them out and could not hear through the receivers. The buzzers did work. The paper dial number circle is loose on each phone. There are a few scuffs on the phones.

The phones measure 6" x 5" and the handsets are 8" long.

The box is included but it is in terrible condition and held together by masking tape. I don't have to include the box if you don't want it.

The phones true color is best depicted in the first 2 photos.

The bottom of the phones read 1981 Mehanotehnika, Made in Yugoslavia, Art 031, Art 029.

This Yugoslavian toy industry was from Izola in Slovenia and the following is a background story in their own words:

"Ever since 1952, Mehanotehnika toy company aided children's creativeness by producing toys which should prepare them for the biggest adventures in life. Special effort is made to ensure the educational value of each toy from the design to planning stage and to the choice of the materials used during production. Therefore, the safety of our toys can be guaranteed. Our aim and mission is to achieve high quality production of educational toys, assuring children's thought process and stimulating their intellectual potential. The main concern is to make children develop with smiles on their faces." (courtesy of http://yugoslavian.blogspot.com/2010/02/toy-telephones-by-mehanotehnika-izola.htm)

A really cute set for your vintage toy collection, play area in preschool or your child's home.
