“Could I spead with Mr. Tito, please?”
As you can see, I have quite a few telephone themed designs here at Toni’s Lighting Factory. Well, I love telephones. I even have a small collection of old toy telephones. That is where this one also comes from. One day I started to think that this handset could look good attached to a lamp stand and after a little engineering the result turned tou to be just stunning. This “Handset” has some timeless feeling in the design. Actually the toy from where I took the handle was made in Yugoslavia in the 1980’s. They were a two phones set with a long wire and you could use it like a real telephone between rooms and call important calls. I think these toy are really cool! And I guess I am not the only one whot thinks so because the prices of these finest examples of communistic design have gotten really high.
They don’t make them like this anymore, you know!
You can put any kind of E27 shade to this piece. The wider shade has a light yellowish tint to it as you can see in the picture.
