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.

American Automatic Telephone Company Dial

We acquired a new addition to the JKL Museum Collection. Keith Cheshire acquired this rare for our telephone museum through Steve Flocke at a recent telephone show.
We are very happy to be able to add this dial to our collection of dials at the JKL Museum of Telephony.

Keith Cheshire hopes to provide us with more information about this very interesting dial and its use. He is currently doing some research regarding this dial and we hope to be able to give an update in the not too distant future.

Scroll down for a short video of this dial.

The SEEANDBEE Telephone at the JKL Museum

The SEEANDBEE Telephone at the JKL Museum

While working on the cataloging project at the JKL Museum, we discovered a small ships telephone made by Kellogg. The telephone is located in the telephone museum’s section for telephones made for use outside and or in hazardous locations or for the use on ships.

This little black telephone is made from sheet metal and fitted with a transmitter marked “STEAMER SEEANDBEE” and “KELLOGG” on the faceplate.  The receiver is secured with a nickel plated clamp to prevent it from falling.
