Description
American Electric Plain Front Wall Phone - Retro - Is still operational - Telephone - Bronze, Wood
U.S. - mid 20th century

American Electric Plain Front telephone. Collectors refer to these as Plain Front telephones because of their flat front devoid of decorative routing in the wood surrounding the mouthpiece.
When we connected a modern telephone plug to the phone and connected the phone to the telephone line, it turned out that it works! Of course, the quality of communication is not very good. One detail is missing - the microphone cover (see photo).
