Classic Series 302 Black Telephone, Retro StylingWild and Wolf
Classic Series 302 Desk Telephone in Black. The iconic type 302 phone was designed by the prolific industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss and introduced in 1937. He used ear to mouth measurements from 2000 people to create the egonomic handset. The 302 was one of the first phones to incorporate the bell in the base of the unit. The phone was originally cast in metal, then later this piece was later produced using a heavy-duty plastic housing. Its appearance, combined with a rugged construction, earned it the nickname The Cows Hoof because of its lipped hoof style base. This early desk version served as the standard for the better part of World War II while telephone design efforts were halted due to defence work. This faithfully reproduced Series 302 telephone gives you great retro styling together with modern day quality and at a great price too. The standard features include push button dialling, redial button, ringer volume on/off switch, tone/pulse switch, earpiece volume control and measures approx 220mm W x 140mm H x 190mm D. Simply plug into a standard UK phone socket.
