Beautiful light lemon yellow wall mount telephone with a smooth working rotary dial. Has a nice plastic receiver hook, new modular cord and plug, back marked (model) 573. It is supposed to be a Model 554. Imprint on bottom says Bell System Made By Western Electric. Light surface wear and scratches.
A couple very tiny grooves on left front below dial (see photo). But, nothing that really detracts from the overall appearance. To see the minor imperfections, you would have to study it close up. Still looks really great hanging on the wall for 50 to 60 years of old! The dial plate is a little deeper tone yellow and looks pretty.
The matching yellow handset with curly modular cord is in great condition and also marked inside on the handle Western Electric. If you have digital telephone service, you will need a converter. Telephone measures 5 1/2 inches wide by 9 1/2 inches high by 2 1/2 inches deep. I got a strong dial tone but I have digital service so cannot dial out. All in all, a great looking retro telephone.The item "Vintage Western Electric Yellow Wall Mount Telephone Model 554" is in sale since Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
