The contemporary version of the 1950s American Diner Phone by Wild & Wolf can make every day feel like a walk back in time. This corded phone has retained the original bell mechanism, authentic rotary look, solid build, and heaviness, though it is lightweight enough to allow wall mounting.

Key features

Retro Design

Unlike its 1950s counterpart, the modern Wild & Wolf American Diner Phone does not require any dimes, nickels, or quarters; simply plug it into a standard UK phone socket. It looks more like a decorative piece than a functional device, but that is until you pick up the receiver and hear the dial tone. It comes with an extra long coiled handset cord so you are not tied to the phone when talking and usable decorative coin slots and cash box that you can use as a saving bank
