To be clear, this is not a telephone from 1892, or even 1992 for that matter—it’s a 21st Century reproduction from the experts at Crosley, who specialize in creating high-quality vintage-inspired telephones like this one, for modern use. You don’t actually need to crank this to use it, as they would have in Paris in 1892, but it’s fun to do all the same. The quality and styling of this phone are convincing enough to be a prop in your next Belle Epoch-era documentary, as long as you don't show a close up of the handy push buttons…but you can also just use it to call your mom. Everything works and the bell is delightful. It has weight and substance!
For those of you who may not know, you can use telephones with an internet telephone line. Why not liberate yourself from the cell phone while in the comfort of your home? It’s never been more affordable to have a home phone line.
