Add a memory or information about this object
- This wartime telephone, marked BCI 1941, was a cheaper version of the 1924 set which had "ornated" French homes for years. After the war, both were superseded by modern Bakelite phones. The original dial was fitted with a black metal disc, and all cords were straight.
