Product Details


From the 1920s this desk phone is generally known as the D08 made by the Danish company, Kjobenhavns Telefon Aktieselskab. With a metal cradle holding the wooden handle with push button alternator to signal the exchange and Bakelite ear and mouthpiece, it has a classic metal bell and rotary dial over porcelain numbers. The metal case is a classic design widely copied by European phones into the 1920s. It was made in a CB version in black painted metal with a counter to indicate the number of minutes used. Cloth cords and plastic end (rewired in 1970s) are a bit frayed. It is in excellent condition with a cracked (but intact) Bakelite earpiece. This antique desk telephone first made in 1906 makes a wonderful decorator piece for home or office. It measures 8 1/2 inches high and the metal base is 7 inches x 6 inches and it weighs almost 10 lbs.
