Steepletone Antique Style Cradle Telephone
Bring a touch of elegant nostalgia to your home with this antique style cradle telephone. Based on the early 1920’s phones, this model features a gently contoured base with a brown wood effect finish and push button key pad that looks like a rotary dial. The handset features a faux wood handle with brass effect and reproduction Bakelite ear and mouth pieces, and rests in an ornate cradle. The key pad looks like a dial but is in fact fixed, with push buttons including # and * keys and a large redial button in the centre.
This style of phone was first introduced circa 1920, alongside the candlestick phone and continued in production until the chunkier handsets of the 1940s became more popular. It is a classic piece with an antique appearance which will create a period atmosphere on a hall table or study desk. This phone evokes a bygone era, one during which technology in general evolved at a fantastic pace. Wars were fought, world leaders came and went and mankind experienced enormous change at home and in the workplace while this type of phone was in production.
The phone is fully functioning with last number re-dial and adjustable ringer volume. This beautifully produced item will grace any home, especially those with a vintage ambience or ‘shabby chic’ atmosphere.

Steepletone was founded in the early seventies and has always been associated with music reproduction, with key products including record players, music centres and radios, which were originally assembled in the UK. Manufacturing from scratch ensures an understanding of what it takes to make a good product, so when production was moved to the Far East in the eighties in order to remain competitive, an office was established there to ensure that product development, design and production retained the high standards established by Steepletone in the early years. The product range has expanded to include several types of record player and a range of vibrant juke boxes, as well as radios, novelty telephones and alarm clocks, all produced to the high technological standards and the stylish design aesthetics that are the hallmark of Steepletone.
