The model 5302 telephone was introduced in 1955 by Western Electric as a look-alike product to the 500-type telephone to meet the increasing post-World War II demand for a modernized telephone, while reusing existing component supplies from the older model 302 telephone. The 302 had been issued since 1937, but starting in 1950, units were replaced with the new 500-series sets, without having served their useful component life. The 5300 and 5400 series of telephones consisted of the 300-series and the 400-series models converted to approach the appearance and performance of the model 500.
 This was accomplished with a new housing, new number ring and dial plate, and a ringer volume control that could be adjusted by users. The model numbering for these sets was derived from the converted 300 or 400 series units by prefixing those model numbers with the digit 5.In addition to the model 5302, the series also consisted of the models 5304, 5306, and 5410 telephone sets. Dial The dial is an early No. 6 that has been fully disassembled, cleaned, lubed and timed to ensure years of trouble free service.
We have also added a freshly powder coated finger wheel, card ring, die cut dial card and acetate. The plastic 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 them carefully buffed on our two step buffing wheels.
This takes out the fine abrasions left by sanding and leaves the plastic with a smooth factory fresh finish. Finally we apply a three step plastic restoration compound.
This leaves the plastic with a beautiful high gloss finish. Dont be fooled by other plastic 500s where they are simply painted, we have the real deal. The Bakelite 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.
Feet The feet are disassembled and sand blasted. They are then re-wrapped with super soft pig skin suede leather to ensure it does not damage the table it proudly sits on.Base The base is completely stripped of all its components and sandblasted clean. It is then painted with a high gloss black enamel then sealed with clear coat. Do you currently have any rotary phones?
