Crosley Classic Kitchen Phone

Crossleyphone 
The Crosley Classic Kitchen Phone is a tribute to the mid-century telephones designed by Henry Dreyfuss.

This wall-mounted phone was originally designed to allow consumers to walk with the phone while cradling it on their shoulder and Dreyfuss undertook an extensive survey of human faces to determine the average distance between the mouth and ear. The Crosley design has incorporated these ideas, but updated the phone with push buttons, redial function and pulse/tone modes.

The phone costs $54 from Urban Outfitters, although sadly it is can only be delivered within the USA.
