Pick up the phone! Our Classic Kitchen Phone is a real conversation piece – a tribute to famed designer Henry Dreyfuss, who created many of the now-classic telephone models made popular in the mid-20th century. This wall-mounted phone was originally designed to allow consumers to walk with the phone while cradling it on their shoulder. This unified and balanced form replaced the awkward and ungainly shapes of earlier models. Believe it or not, Dreyfuss actually used measurements from over 2000 faces to determine the average distance between the mouth and ear. And all of this vintage design is augmented by a wealth of modern features, including push button dialing, flash/redial button, ringer volume switch and tone/pulse modes. Imported. Wipe clean.
