This Authentic Russian Salvaged 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.
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.
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.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
