The Automatic Electric Type 34 Monophone was the first integrated deskset from Automatic Electric. It was manufactured from 1934-1938 and is great example of art deco design. The body on this phone is in remarkable condition and has no cracks or breaks.

The Restoration Process

Dial – The dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. The outer edge of the dial has been stripped and repainted with a gloss white enamel. Unless the dial is removed, this is something you will rarely ever even see, but this is how it would have come from the factory. The number plate has been cleaned and a perfectly matching overlay has been applied. We have added a freshly chrome plated finger wheel and dial card ring, as well as die cut dial card and acetate cover.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new colour matched ivory cloth covered cords that are made in house on the same type of equipment originally used by the phone companies. They look amazing. 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 ivory 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 painted with a high gloss clear coat. The components are then cleaned, tested and reinstalled. A brand new rubber gasket has been added around the telephone.

The phone goes through extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
