Rare Ivory Western Electric model 354 wallmount telephone.

History

The Model 352 is the wall phone version of the famed Model 302 deskphone. When it was introduced in 1946 it was the first "modern" wall phone made by Western and Northern Electric and it replaced many of the old wood phones that were still common at the time.

 

The Restoration Process

Dial – The dial has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. We have also added a brand-new plastic fingerwheel, die cut dial card and acetate.

Cradle – We have professionally chrome plated the cradle for a brand-new look.

Cords – The phone has been outfitted with brand new vinyl cords and the line cord has a modular connection to facilitate a connection to your wall jack. We do have available modular back plates, message us for details.

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 them carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the plastic with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally we apply a three step plastic restoration compound. This leaves the plastic with a beautiful high gloss finish

Base – The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then sealed with a clear coat to resist rust. The components are then cleaned, tested and reinstalled.
