1955 Mahogany (Brown) Rotary Dial Phone

Made from the years 1954 through 1958 the mahogany is one of the most rare colors of the Western Electric telephones. This particular telephone was made in 1955 with some parts from late 1954. As with all of the pre-1960 models the phone has only 6 holes on the receiver cap. Also you will note the thick matching coiled handset cord. The cord is "hardwired" not a modular plug-in style of later phones. To learn more about rotary dial phones, please visit my web site at
