Rotary Telephone, 1981
2006, altered telephone
4-1/2 x 9 x 6 inches

This vanity edition of the popular Polish T-150 rotary telephone was made in partnership with TeleKom and is outfitted with a special HNH speed dial function that was available previously only on touch tone models.

1981 has been an historic year filled with big headlines -- the royal wedding, the release of American hostages after 444 days in Iran, both Ronald Reagan and the Pope surviving assassination attempts, and the launch of MTV.

Meanwhile, in our little nook of the snowglobe, Blondie's Call Me, the best selling hit of the previous year, continues representing our calling card to remain active. When you are ready, we can share the wine.
