The candlestick phone, also known as the "upright," initially became popular during the early 1900s before the introduction of the one-piece handset. From its bell-shaped mouthpiece to its cloth-covered receiver cord, this lovely replica recalls the original. A closer look reveals some modern technology, including a decorative dial that functions as a push button for tone/pulse operation as well as a center medallion that serves as a redial button.
In 1920, dismayed by the expense of a radio receiver, Powell Crosley decided to make his own. After building one for a fraction of the price, he was quick to spot the market potential. Crosley Radio's line of superbly detailed replicas and accessories continues to thrive today. We love their cool medley of technological aptitude and vintage attitude.
