eBay Find of the Day: Donut Phone

'Seventies-era Western Electric Sculptura telephones (aka "Donut" phones) are popping up all over the place lately:

In the new CB2 catalog ...

... in actress Ione Skye's David Netto-designed bedroom, featured in Domino ...

... in the latest "Trendy Objects Drinking Game" on Hatch ...

... and, of course, on eBay. The model pictured at top, in cheery of-the-moment yellow, is in good working order and has a handy touch-tone pad. (Rotary dialing, after all, is just so onerous.)

Current bid: $22. Hurry -- the auction ends Monday night.

I own two of these phones in rotary brown and they are great. Real bell ringers and sound better than modern phones. The rotary dial is so much fun.
