This colonial style country kitchen phone is an authentic reproduction of early American heritage. While this beautiful recreation is designed to provide extremely high-quality communications, it has all the charm of the faithful original. Originally introduced in the early 1920's, this classic features a crank handle that actually turns. This Crosley Country Kitchen Phone features touch-tone buttons with a rotary look, complete with speaker and hold functions. The handcrafted wood and veneer cabinet is enhanced with striking brushed bronze-plated hardware. This beauty is as functional as it is fabulous, including a recipe-style storage compartment, volume controls for ringer and receiver and the option to change between tone/pulse.
