Description

    Prop Telephone from "I Love Lucy." A vintage Western Electric telephone from the greatest sitcom ever, with "Murray Hill 5-9099" printed on the rotary dial. Murray Hill and Circle were actual call names used in Manhattan at the time the show was on the air, and the Ricardos had three different telephone numbers during the series: MUrray-hill 5-9975, CIrcle-7-2099, and MUrray-hill 5-9099. In actuality these numbers were unused telephone numbers of the New York Bell Telephone Company. (When the numbers were entered in to service, the company would advise the show's producers and give them a new number to use.) The phone is in Very Fine condition with very light wear. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop & Wardrobe Co.
