Sound Powered Telephones operate by converting sound waves into the mouthpiece on the right of the phone into energy to power the phone. SPTs are still widely used on vessels worldwide.
This Authentic Salvaged Russian Ship’s Wall Phone measures 11 inches tall not including any cords that hang down, the phone’s body is only 10 inches wide. When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 8 inches and weighs just about 12.5 pounds.
The plate on the face of the phone’s body displays Russian language that we believe is meant to identify other areas of the ship that could be contacted with this phone.
Our Russian Salvaged Wall Phone is in as-found condition with no verification of the working condition. It has not been restored at all! It is a great historical piece and it displays very well! Just the thing for your nautical themed décor or garage.
