Get the Commissioner ... on the Gotham Phone

Purchased this in 199? from "Cash Converters". Despite taking it back twice, it still doesn't work. But I just cannot part with it!

I once had plans to convert the hand-piece into a mobile phone ... but I couldn't convince myself to cut the cord to the base!

    what an old phone it is historic now days. They are more streamline and digital nowdays.

    It's more the color that captures my heart. Truthfully, this telephone is not that old: These were built for a BATMAN movie.

    COOL! You need an old clear plastic cake server sitting on top of it! :)
  • StephenMitchell 8y

    A what? Sorry, spacepotato, I can't say I know what you mean!
  • SpacePotato 8y

    You'd have to remember the old 1960's TV series of Batman with Adam West and Burt Ward. The Commisioner's Bat-phone was covered with a clear plastic cake server with a kitchen tap stuck on top.

    This lacks the original dialer mechanism, the one thing I liked about the old phones, anyone can see this is a push button unit! lol

    Ansell, you've ruined the illusion! LOL

    It may be a new reproduction telephone, but its still a classic phone design :-)
  • StephenMitchell 5y

    Thanks Old Telephones, glad you like this old classic. For the record, it has been in storage for about 5 years. One day I'll get it out and display as a vintage-model of a time-gone-by! :D
