Kellogg 925 - Ivory
Kellogg 925 AKA "Ashtray" phone, refinished in Ivory, Brass or Chrome trim available.
From the Kellogg Company of Chicago is another cleverly designed telephone. The model 925 is affectionately nicknamed the "ashtray" This was because of the ashtray style cups on the body of the phone. This design was unique in that the user could rest the handset down on the phone without having to hang up. The bakelite body has been beautifully refinished in ivory, as well as the receiver. The receiver sounds loud and clear as does the ringer. The dial has been lubricated and timed perfectly. This phone has a modern network installed to facilitate a connection to your existing phone jack. As a finishing touch we have added brown cloth covered handset and line cords to this phone.
Do you currently have any rotary phones? If the answer is no, it is always a good idea to call your local phone company and check if they still support “pulse” dialing. If they do, you are all set to go. If they do not, your phone will not be able to place calls without a converter. We have internal converters that we install during assembly available for $79.95.

As an alternative, we provide an option to use this phone as an extension of your cell phone. The XLink Bluetooth gateway is an device external to the phone that gets it’s power from a standard AC outlet. The cord from the phone will then connect to a phone jack on the gateway. When you pair the gateway to an active Bluetooth enabled cell phone, you will be able to use the vintage phone just like it was connected to a traditional landline. When someone calls your cell phone, the vintage phone will ring, and you will be able to dial out using the dial on the vintage phone. If you want to be able to call # and * using your rotary dial, you will also need to add the pulse to tone converter option.
