302 Classic Desk Phone - Black
First introduced in 1937, the 302 Desk Phone makes a statement of style, grace and elegance. The prolific industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss used ear to mouth measurements from 2000 people to create the ergonomic handset.
The 302 was one of the first phones to incorporate the bell in the base of the unit. Originally cast in metal, this piece was later produced using a heavy-duty plastic housing. The phone's appearance, combined with a rugged construction earned it the nickname 'The Cow's Hoof' because of its lipped hoof-style base.
This early desk version served as the standard for the better part of World War II while telephone design efforts were halted due to defence work. The Series 302 Desk Phone is a conversation piece in any setting.
The 302 Desk Phone has push button dialling and plugs into a standard phone socket.
