1970’s Vintage AT&T Design Line “Chestphone”
In 1973, AT&T partnered with Henry Dreyfuss & Associates to create a collection of specialty "Design Line" telephones--allowing customers to tailor their technology to fit their home decor.
The Chestphone could be hidden from view by closing its box lid. Advertised as a perfect fit for dens, it was available in simulated walnut, leatherette, or an abstract "optique" pattern.
This simulated walnut version has a decorative border on both the top and the bottom of the box.
To ensure the best shipping cost, S & H will be calculated and billed separately.
Note: If your phone service provider no longer supports rotary telephones or pulse dialing this will not work without a pulse to tone converter.
If you don't have regular landline phone service, an XLink Bluetooth gateway should allow you to use this phone as an extension of your cell phone. The XLink Bluetooth gateway will allow you to make and receive calls using a vintage rotary dial phone through a Bluetooth connection to your cell phone. Note - the XLink supports both pulse and tone dialing.
