    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.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
