Ready to purchase another!! I was afraid this phone would be a lightweight plastic phone. That it would not be durable. It ended up being perfect. It is not too heavy or light. Great quality and durable. Very simple to assemble! It is old fashioned with a simple modern look at the same time. Everyone who comes in our house notices it. Especially our parents and grandparents who are happy to see a style from thier younger days still being used today! I am ready to purchase another similar type phone for my bedroom night stand.
Amazing Retro Look! The only addition I would make is to light the push button "dials" so that they can be seen in low light. Otherwise, this phone is perfect! I particularly love the shade of red (gorgeous), the ease with which it is installed, and the old-time "heft" of quality. I am so very happy with this purchase. Thank you...
This is the best phone ever! This phone was a hit in our salon. I needed a receiver that would stay in its cradle. The trimline kept being dropped because stylists were generally in a hurry to get back to their clients. The retro receiver is of substantial weight & cannot slide out of place. The ringtone is pleasant, yet can be heard above the noise of the blowdryers.
In 1920 Powel Crosley founded the company that pioneered radio broadcasting and mass market manufacturing around the world. Dismayed with the $130 price tag for the radio receiver he promised to buy for his son’s birthday, Crosley decided to make his own. Upon successfully building a working set for only $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential.
It was a simple idea - design a fully functioning radio, meticulously craft each unit with obsessive detail and precise accuracy, and of course add a measure of consideration for the wallet.
This simple idea led Crosley Radio to become the world’s largest radio manufacturer while Powel Crosley became known as ‘The Henry Ford of Radio.’ His relentless fascination with mechanical devices, coupled with his intense desire for success, sent Crosley’s career soaring.
Today the Crosley name lives on with superbly detailed replicas that truly transcend time.
