Description from Three Potato Four
So beautiful! This circa 1940’s Stromberg-Carlson 1222 Deskset telephone has been fully reconditioned with care by a collector/hobbyist who worked for a telephone company for over thirty years. We were lucky to meet him in-person and happen upon these gorgeous working phones. We love that you can see his passion in the workmanship and details.
As this collector/hobbyist explains, this phone is fully functioning for today’s phone systems and is equipped with a line cord and modular connector for connection to a standard telephone jack. Constructed of Die Cast Zinc and noted for its cut off corner octagonal base, this Stromberg phone was used in independent telephone company territories in mostly rural areas throughout the U.S.
