I rescued this old-school rotary phone, which was being sold “as-is”. After some cleaning, polishing, and wiring, it is back in working order.
Sorry, forgot to take the “before” shot.
For those of you who are keeping score, this is an early-1980s replica of a 1950s french model phone. I’m happy to have found it, and even happier to have restored it.
Ingredients: simple green, goo gone, brass polish, oil, wire, love.
Instructions: add all ingredients to a rare retro phone using a circular motion.
