A few years ago my aunt and uncle purchased a house full of stuff - collected over a lifetime by a woman who was an art teacher and traveler, but became a recluse later in life. I got the opportunity to go through the last few boxes of jewelry and clothing after most had been picked over, and still found some amazing things.
This little charm or plastic key fob was in a miscellaneous jewelry box, and I liked the little phone so much I put it on a sterling silver chain to take home. A month or so ago, I rediscovered it, and after having written about the Princess Phone for CW, I realized what I had was probably a promotional item given out around the time of their debut (1959).
On the bottom of the little sea-foam green telephone, it reads "THE PRINCESS PHONE IT's LITTLE, IT's LOVELY, IT LIGHTS" - which was the phone's slogan. I wish it actually lit up! But I love my little princess anyway. :)
