Classic elegance combines with practical function to make the Crosley Desk Phone a winsome addition to any home. Introduced in 1937, the 302 desk phone was designed by Henry Dreyfuss and originally cast in metal, with the bell in the base of the unit. The phone was later produced using a heavy-duty plastic housing and its retro-style appearance, combined with a rugged construction, earned it the nickname The Cow’s Hoof because of its lipped hoof-style base. This early desk version, which served as the standard for the better part of the World War II, is now recreated for modern homes. Though this phone features the nostalgic rotary dial, it uses convenient push-button technology to make it easy to dial phone numbers. With its retro appeal, the Crosley Desk Phone will be a conversation piece in any setting.
