The Crosley phone returns to the desk in this Henry Dreyfuss tribute. Dreyfuss, considered a brilliant industrial designer, worked with Bell Telephone Laboratories designing telephones that would suit a variety of home environments. Well-known for the Crosley 302 Wall Phone, he later shifted his design efforts to include this desk unit that allows users to walk with the phone while cradling it on their shoulder. This unified and balanced form replaced the awkward shapes of earlier models. Dreyfuss actually used measurements from over 2,000 faces to determine the average distance between the mouth and ear. This phone features the nostalgic rotary dial but actually functions with push-button technology. No more waiting for that rotary dial to make its slow rotation.
First introduced in 1937, this nostalgic design was the first to incorporate the bell in the base of the unit
