The telephone attachments are not old, but they are a good copy of the originals that did not survive over the years. These attachments were designed and produced by Bob Alexander of These attachments can be used on wall & candlestick telephones.

    AR8Jason, The original were made of celluloid (thermoplastic) but over a period of time it would start decomposing to a point of cracking and breaking off. The repro's graphics are done on paper wraped around a tin backing with a plastic cover.

    Yes some are still around in other collections in pretty good condition. I will see if I can get a collector I know who will send me a photo of a original.

    I was about to say... I'm pretty sure coke never made a candlestick phone attachment like that.

    Cocacolakid, I'm pretty sure your right, but it makes a nice advertising piece for a candlestick phone.

    Love these I've seen them on Bobs site and I have a few thousand of his limited edition pinback buttons and pocket mirrors many signed by him (some on my home page here) most of his items even the 2016 Political items have the old look. Cool stuff
