Starlite AE 182

Recently a 1968 Starlite AE 182 model was donated to us. It has a electroluminescent dial ring that is powered by 110 VAC cord right into the phone. Guess you would not want to use this setup on the edge of your bathtub… The Starlite 182 model was Automatic Electric’s answer to Western Electric’s Princess telephone.

  1. Is the light working in your Starlite phone? I have acquired a few of them and only one has a working light, which is very dim, but it does look good in the dark. I found a discussion about repairing the lights on one of the forums years ago but I can no longer find it.
