Original DeVeau Candlestick Freshly powder coated - Fully refurbished.The Restoration Process
Faceplate & Cup - We have had this professionally nickel plated
Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new cloth covered cords that are made in house on the same type of equipment originally used by the phone companies. They look amazing. You can choose from either black or brown cloth cords. The line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a modern connection to your wall jack.
Shell – The metal body has been stripped down and sandblasted using a glass grit media and powder coated in a semi-gloss black finish. This closely resembles the finish on the original candlestick.
Receiver – The original Bakelite receiver has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris out. It is then sanded through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit and buffed back to its beautiful original shine.
Network – The candlestick is outfitted with an unique network that fits in the transmitter housing. This allows the telephone to connect to a modern network without the need for a subset, although a subset with ringer is available.
Base – The base is carefully sand blasted and rewrapped with high quality green felt to ensure it does not damage the table it proudly sits on.
The phone goes extensive testing before to ensure it is in perfect working condition prior to shipping.
