PRESERVE THE GREAT ITALIAN HERITAGE OF ETTORE SOTTSASS AND THE LEGACY OF ENORME CORPORATION - ITALY
VERY RARE EDITION
Ettore Sottsass Phone, Enorme Telephone, Year 1986 (New - Ple. Read Condition Note)
The telephone is still brand new in the box though the top of the box and the paper wraparound for the box are missing, and there is some wear & tear on the lower section of the box and the styrofoam inserts. Apart from that, the phone headset and base are still sealed in plastic, the cables are still sealed in place inside the box, and the instructions are still new and in their place on the bottom section of the box. A set of batteries is supposed to be included from the factory though we are not sure if the batteries are present or not. They may possibly be in the base unit though since the base is still sealed, we have not open the base to be able to inspect it, so we just assume that the successful buyer may possibly need to purchase some batteries, if expecting to be used as a daily telephone Vs collectible.
Only few examples were produced and no longer in circulation. Only able to see in Art Gallery & Museums.
