About the 302 Model Telephone

The Model 302 phone subscriber set was produced by Western Electric from 1937; manufacture of entirely new units was ceased after the introduction of the Model 500, but Model 302 units were continually remanufactured as such at least until 1958, and as the Model 5302 telephone which was simply a change to a more modern housing, well into the next decade. Overseas, the Model 302's exterior design was retained by European Bell branch companies for such models as the 1954 Bell Standard, widely used in the Netherlands and Belgium. The Model 302 was in-plant from 1937 and was never completely retired from service. Designed by Henry Dreyfuss, it was the first widely-used american subscriber set to include the ringer and anti-sidetone circuitry in the same unit as the rest of the subscriber set; prior Western Electric models required the use of an external “subset” (ringer box). It was heavily influenced by Ericsson model DBH 1001 of 1931, designed in 1929 by the Norwegian artist and designer Jean Heiberg.

Most of the Model 302 sets came in black, but eight other colors - ivory, bronze, silver, gold, rose, blue, green and red - were added toward the end of the phone's production run. The early phones had metal finger wheels, while later specimens featured clear plastic finger wheels. Dial plates were made with white porcelain on U.S. WE 302 models, while European versions tended to use black bakelite with white numbers. The original handset cord was straight and covered with brown woven fabric, but a straight rubber-covered cord was later introduced, followed by a coiled rubber-covered cord.

The WE 302 was a rugged and easily repaired desk telephone. As part of its U.S. monopoly, most telephones were owned by AT&T, who leased them to subscribers for a monthly charge, some were sold, and can be identified by the handset which is coded F1W, the 'W' signifying without Bell System markings. Beginning in August 1955 and extending into the 1960s, AT&T began remanufacturing the Model 302 as the Model 5302, with a base shell of new design which gave the set something of the appearance of a Model 500.Other manufacturers produced sets of very similar appearance. Among the more notable of these were the Stromberg-Carlson Model 1243 telephone, distinguished by beveled corners and flanging on the handset, and the Federal Telephone & Radio model 803 which featured components made by Automatic Electric.
