1980s Original Red Ericofon 600 Telephone By Ericsson

This fantastic looking red phone is an original 1980s Original Red Ericofon 600 Telephone By Ericsson or ‘Cobra Phone’.

Made in Sweden, it is a real collector’s piece and, other than a light clean, has had no restoration. It has a few light surface scuffs and scratches. In working condition, it is supplied with a UK phone socket connector.

The Ericofon (1950s-1980s), besides being a one-piece phone, had the unique feature of a dial hidden in the base of the phone.

An iconic design, the Ericofon is very difficult to come across in such good original condition.
