The “Rotary Phone” refers to the dialing mechanism used in older telephones. Instead of the digital keypad, we are familiar with today, rotary phones had a circular dial with numbered holes corresponding to the digits. Users would rotate the dial to the desired number and then release it, causing it to spin back to its original position. This mechanism would generate electrical pulses corresponding to the dialed number, enabling the call to be connected.
These telephones are characterized by their classic design, often with a sturdy and decorative base that could be placed on a desk or table.
Collectors and enthusiasts often appreciate vintage telephones for their nostalgic value, historical significance, and unique design. Soviet-era items like this Bakelite telephone can hold particular interest due to their connection to a specific period in history.
