Excellent Conversation Piece. My husband and I remodeled our kitchen. We wanted to cover the phonejack. When I saw this awesome phone for such a great price, we just had to have it. When we received it, it was even nicer than I had expected. [...] the phone itself is not only a great conversation piece, but looks great! Not only that but it works very well. Love It!
Red is my favorite color. It's great.... ilve it. the color the look. I am not fond of the heavy handle and since I'm a multi tasker ..it annoys me that I can't balance the handle and work in the kitchen at the same time. when I'm on that phone (it's my only phone besides a cell) I then can only be on the phone because the handle won't balance on my shoulder. But I love everything else about it.
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.
