Now, you can find old Western Electric equipment on ebay. They have the old 500 series phones, princess phone, touch tone phones, the Trimline phone with keypad, and the card dialer phone.

As a kid this "brand name" used to puzzle me. Saw it advertised but never saw any of its products anywhere. Didn't understand the concept of supplier then.
