Los Angeles will host the Olympics in 2028, which brings back memories from the 1984 Summer Olympics, also in the city of angels. The LA games were a huge hit, in no small part due to the women’s gymnastics team and Miss Mary Lou Retton, who catapulted herself (literally) into being America’s sweetheart in one smile-inducing routine.
This AT&T telephone was made as a tie-in to those games, a series of phones featuring pewter sculptures by sculpture Marcel Jovine. Happily, we have the best of that remarkable series here: the elegant gymnast, with leg extended high. Had it been made after the games, it might have resembled Mary Lou a bit more...but no matter, she is lovely. The telephone works well, with a pull down front to reveal push buttons. This is a rare and unique desk telephone, the perfect gift for any Olympic fan.
