Western Electric aqua blue touch tone Princess Phone
The 1960s come alive again with this aqua blue Western Electric 2702 Touch Tone Princess Phone.
This classic is in great condition with a high gloss sheen and a fresh paint job. We have meticulously restored this phone in every way. The phones original rich color has been re applied using the very same materials and procedures used by Western Electric years ago. Overall the phone looks GREAT!
What I like most about the Princess Phone is the light that illuminates the touch tone pad and one of the plungers when you pick up the handset. This feature was promoted extensively by Western Electric in their "It's little, It's Lovely, It Lights" marketing campaign.
The 2702 series of Princess phones come with a wonderful mechanical ringer inside the phone. Your really appreciate the highly audible RRRING that is sure to get the attention of everyone in your household!
The Restoration Process
Touchpad – The touchpad has been cleaned and calibrated to the correct specs.
Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new vinyl cords and the line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.
Shell – The shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This ensures that there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is then professionally painted in a high gloss aqua blue using Polane. This is a very durable and scratch resistant paint that will hold up for years. This is the same process the phone companies used to refurbish their own telephones.
Base – The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then sealed with a clear coat to resist rust. We then apply a brand-new die cut cork bottom to the base. The components are then cleaned, tested and reinstalled.
The phone goes through extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
