Telephone Corded Button

Remember those stretchy cords that came out of landline telephones back in the day? This large and bizarre button is bordered in that same plastic cordinga sort of rubberized celluloid if there is such a thing. The main, brown component of this old wonder tested positive for Bakelite. Classified as one of my favorite weirdos, in all my research I've never seen anything like this daffy crank-caller of a button. When you hold it up to your ear, you can actually hear a dial tone.
