Remembering Rotary Dial Candle Phones

Sep 22, 2014 11:12:01 AM

The history of rotary dial candle phones dates back to 1919, which prevailed the rest of the 20th century. Candlestick phones come in a variety of finishes and materials. While some antique replicas are fully functional, some can be used as a decorative piece or can be used as a great vintage gift item. Our collection of vintage replica phones include contemporary vintage style phones, brass ornamental phones, nickel finish decorative candle stick phone, old retro landline phones, etc. We offer free express delivery to destinations around the world.

The end of rotary dial came in 1963 with the introduction of touch tone dial phones in the market. The touch tone keypad phones were made available to the general public with the Model 1500. A number of other models were introduced thereafter. Today, it is unusual to see a rotary dial in use. At Collectibles Buy, we have kept those engineering marvels alive with our antique replicas. We offer authentic reproduction of historical items with our wealth of experience and highly experienced artisans.

Rotary candlestick telephones were produced in a variety of styles by many manufacturers. Most prominent among them were Western Electric, Automatic Electric Co. Kellogg Switchboard & Supply Company and Stromberg-Carlson. Among them, the Western Electric #20B Desk Phone was the first tube shaft candlestick telephone patented in 1904. Retro style candlestick telephones were made long after the original phones were superseded. Later new desktop models were developed.

We pride ourselves in our ability to keep the historic designs alive thorough our antique replicas including nautical searchlight, tripod floor lamp, vintage camera, etc. Order online and get free home delivery.
