Perfect working condition vintage Western Electric 202 "Hollywood" movie style telephone, with an external ITT ringer box, loud brass bells with three settings. The base is marked D-1 on the back. The handset is marked E-1. Mouthpiece is spitcup or "cupped" marked 112. Earpiece is marked 557B. Wired with cloth-covered cords and equipped with modular jack plug.This was professionally restored in 1991 by the gentleman who had Chicago Old Telephone Company in North Carolina before they closed. I can't verify if it will work with newer telecommunications company providers, but it works at the front desk of my condo building (where I tested it, as I no longer have a landline).
A note on the appearance: I photographed this outdoors in sunlight, but adjusted the settings to make the ID numbers more visible. The phone is actually a rich satin black and will be a very handsome addition to your decor whether you intend to display it, or use it. If you would like to see the original images, ask a question through the feature for that purpose and I'll respond with whatever you want.The ringer has three settings, controlled by sliding the brass tab on the back of the ringer box. It is LOUD. When I had it hooked up in the living room on the first floor of my former two-story 2300 square foot house, the ringer on its loudest setting could be heard clearly in the master bedroom at the back of the house, upstairs, and with the bedroom door closed.
