Retro telephone, made to look like a vintage one. The design is very reminiscent of early US bakelite telephones like the American Electric Monophone. Although it is a touch tone telephone, the buttons are arranged in such a manner, that it looks like the phone has a rotary dial. It even has a fingerstop molded in the plastic.

It is however a fully electronic telephone, with a printed circuit board and electronic ringer. It is a very light phone of low build quality. It even has a couple of metal plates inside to give it some weight.
