Fully Refurbished North Electric Galion. This wonderful working example of 1940s design is sure to fit into your period decorating scheme. During the early years of production the body of these phones were made from metal. This was changed in later years to Bakelite.
North Electric made their own dial for these phones, although they are often found with an Automatic Electric dial. Western Electric manufactured the internal network.
North Electric manufactured many phones through the years. It is perhaps best known for the Ericofon that it produced under license during the 1960's.It has been carefully stripped and then given a new high gloss finish that not only looks fantastic, but also has great durability. The original Bakelite North Electric handset has been lovingly buffed to bring our it's original high gloss sheen. As a finishing touch, a new cloth covered handset cord, and a modular line cord has been added to this classic. All components have been fully overhauled and tested to ensure that they will function properly both now, and in the years to come. Dial The dial is an early Automatic Electric that has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service. We have sandblasted the finger wheel / dial ring and powder coated in a semi-gloss black. We have also added a brand new die cut dial card and acetate.
The shell has been painstakingly put through a multi-step restoration process which includes sanding with 400, 800, 1000, 2000 grit. This ensures that there are no scratches, dents or dings. The shell is then carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels. This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the Bakelite with a smooth factory fresh finish.
Handset Handset has been ultrasonically cleaned to get all embedded debris. It is then sanded with the same process as the shell and buffed back to its beautiful original shine. Base The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean.It is then sealed with a clear coat to resist rust. The components are then cleaned, tested and reinstalled. Feet The feet are disassembled and sand blasted. They are then wrapped with super soft pig skin suede leather to ensure it does not damage the table it proudly sits on.
