General Information

Desktop Telephone from the 1930s.

This telephone is strictly speaking a new edition, but one that is close to the original. The Bakelite® gets its form in the original press moulds. A classic number switch is rattling when you are dialling. Plus, the W48 rings with the help of two metal bell domes – adapted to today’s technical regulations. Some details can only be found in our version of this rotary dial phone. We have the handset cable wrapped with the authentic “iron yarn”, the special ruggedized cotton fabric of those days, for example.

Back to the Future for Our W48.

You can connect the W48 to a router, speed port, FRITZ!Box etc. It even operates with a digital telephone converter – the device converts the pulses of dial or keys into multi-frequency dial tones and enables IP telephony (VoIP), i.e. telephoning via computer networks set up according to internet standards.

Please note:

Bakelit® is a registered trademark of the Momentive Specialty Chemicals GmbH.
