Bakelite Telephones & Collectables

Collecting Bakelite phones

Bakelite telephones best known for their black and rotary design of the 1940's and 1950's are perhaps what most people think of when referring to collectable telephones.

Not too many years ago one used to be able to pick them up relatively cheaply from car boot sales and fairs, whereas now, their easy recognition makes them a little more valuable. Some collectors and dealers will restore them and even fit them with modern componets so that they work on a modern exchaanges.
