HISTORY

Introduced in 1959, the Princess line of telephones became popular in the early 1960's. Along with the 1950's era Model 500, these were the first phones that came in a variety of colors to match a room's decor and for that reason were highly popular with teenage girls. The small and curved design did not allow an internal ringer at first but one would be introduced later. Perhaps its most unique feature was the lighted dialface powered by an external transformer which allowed Ma Bell to advertise "It's little...It's lovely...It Lights!"

Pink Price: $49.95 plus s/h

 

The original models had a rotary dial but due to its smaller size and weight than earlier desk phones, it was possible to dial the Princess phone straight off of your nightstand or desk. Later versions had the touch tone keypad of today... first without the * or # keys... but the final version had the 12 buttons we see on all phones today. The replicas available today cleverly combine the touch tone keys into a rotary ring to simulate the rotary dial appearance of the later models.
