Designed by Henry Dreyfus and put into service in 1937, the Western Electric 354 is the wall version of the popular 302 or "Lucy Phone".

This phone is commonly misrepresented as Bakelite, but in fact Western Electric never made any phones using Bakelite (other than for the handsets). They didn't think it was tough enough for long service life. The body of this phone is thermal plastic.

The phone originally came with a straight handset cord, but later models used the curl cord. I can do either way for you at your request (if no request is made, I'll pick one that's nice).

To mount this phone, you bolt it directly to the wall. I do have modern modular plates available for an extra $10. If you want to attach your phone directly to a modern wall phone jack, click the icon below after making your purchase.
