Continuing the 'phone conversation', here's a table of telling bones, which I've collected over the years. The most expensive by far was the upright cream Erikson which I bought in a beautiful vintage shop in Whitby called Stonehouse.
The rest of the phones were from local car boot sales. They all worked except the American cream push button Bell, probably my favourite phone of the batch. I adored the way they were carried round for miles around kitchens and dens in US TV shows!
The black and grey flatbed phone was issued by Swatch no less. The radio-phone at the front was a hangover from the 1990's and inspired by that icon of the Seventies bed-side, the Goblin Teasmaid I should think. I wonder if you could use the phone as a clock alarm?
Alas, many have these have now left Moonbase for pastures new but all were cared for whilst resting here.
