Bought this recently with the intention of having it converted for use.
I believe it is Onyx although it was described as Italian marble. The base is 7 & 3/4 inches x 9 & 1/2 inches and the height is 9 & 1/2 inches. The ear & mouth pieces appear to be plastic based possibly. Braided cords with blue, red, brown & white wiring. There is some damage at the right back corner. Dial action is very smooth & quiet.
The label appears to be original & states the phone is:
GOLD PLATED - 18 K
MADE IN ITALY.
I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and want so badly to get it back into use. Does anybody know anything about this phone or it's maker? I'm guessing it may have been used by a company executive or someone similiar, as it seems quite large for a household phone.
More importantly, how do I get it converted, how to find a reputable restorer to fix the damage & the best way to clean it. I hope someone can help.
