SOLD $79.95 Vintage French Provincial Style Dial Phone - Item #212
This is a very elegant vintage 1970s French Provincial made by American Telecommunications. It has antiqued gold colored Victorian style scenes on every side of the base, as well as the dial and handle holder. The scenes depict romantic couples. It has a cream colored base top. Just love the look and the telephone works great. It has a bell sound when it rings. The phone comes with a matching phone cord. It is always great to have a dial phone in the house since they still work even when the power is out. The only condition issue is a couple of bite marks on the end of the receiver. Please choose Federal Express Home Delivery at checkout. Would look great in absolutely every room in the house but especially on the Victorian desk or in the boudoir.

SOLD $19.95 Vintage Solid Brass Ink Well Stand With Pen Rack - Item #435

It was tested with a magnetic and the magnetic did not stick. The piece is unsigned. Unfortunately, the piece is missing the ink cup insert but you may be able to get an insert for the ink. Otherwise, the piece is in excellent condition. It is very heavy and would also make a great paperweight for a desk.
