Crosley Wall Phone In Retro Black

Retro Crosley Wall Phone

When my son was younger, he asked me one of those questions that is guaranteed to make you feel old. He asked, “Why do they call it dialing a phone?” Remember when you had to stand in the kitchen and use the wall mounted phone, the days when a mobile phone meant you has a 25 ft cord? In this age of smartphones and cordless rechargeable home phones, it is hard to find a phone that fits in well with a retro modern home decor.

Sure, you could always hit the thrift shop and buy an old avocado green phone made by Ma Ball. But even I have to admit that I have become accustomed to the modern features like redial and a volume control. Not to mention the basic task of navigating a phone tree, something impossible with a traditional dial-up phone. Well leave it to Crosley to come up with a cool, retro wall mounted phone with a mid-century 50s style that is still packed with all the features you need to navigate through daily life.

Crosley Wall Phone in RedCrosley 302 Wall Phone replica has the cool, throwback look of and old rotary phone. It has a nicely tapered handset and looks like something you would see in a black and white movie or television show. I have shown the basic black model above but it is also available in classic red and even a brushed metal version that looks pretty cool. These retro wall phones look perfect in a retro kitchen, rec room or even in your garage.

Don’t worry about having to teach your kids to use the dial, the Crosley 302 Wall Phone has a unique push button face in the shape of the old rotary dial. It has all the modern features you would expect to find in a contemporary phone like redial and a switch to turn off the ringer if you want some privacy.

So if you are looking for a retro style wall phone but you can’t live without all of those modern conveniences that we have come to depend on, check out the Retro Crosley 302 Wall Phone. It is available for not much more than a regular wall mounted phone at RetroPlanet, only it’s a lot hipper.
