Steampunk Telephone Hides its Modern Innards in a Classic Body

They died about a million years ago, and may be irrelevant to modern needs and functions, but these old phones sure had style. This particular phone has been made as a replica of the 1892 L.M. Ericsson model, in terms of looks at least. The rotary dial has given way to push buttons and the generator crank serves no real purpose, although it is functional.

Of course landlines aren’t that far from extinction either, but we can’t help think that this thing would have been a lot better with a rotary dial and perhaps some actual function for the crank. Costs $110.
