Collection

Below is an overview of the 70 models I have collected until today. There are 67 unique Ericofons plus 3 ‘sort of’ doubles. The doubles are in italic because there is a reason to keep them as part of my private collection. They are some kind of unique too.

The 700s are removed from the overview picture because my display area was getting too small 🙂 Anyway, I have to think about an alternative display now since there is no more room.  Actually I like the current setup. Maybe add another row?

As you see I still miss any models in the colors Chartreuse and Royal Dubonnet. Also clear Ericofons are quite hard to find, specially in The Netherlands.

 

Collection700

  1. 700 White (11 button version)
  2. 700 Brown
  3. 700 Orange
  4. 700 Green
  5. 700 Blue

Until now I did not focus on special models, like clear, leather, fuzz and painted. Although I have a few painted models that crossed my path. Maybe in the future I will also start to have a look to them. There is a whole range of metallic painted Ericofons by Nichco and actually they look pretty nice. See my latest 2 phones…

    Very nice collection. I am also a collector but I don’t have a collection as nice as yours.

      Thank you for the compliment. Yes, some colors are still missing, these are typical colors made made for the US market and very rare. The good thing is that there will always be a reason to keep collecting. 🙂

      Thank you. At this moment the interesting models are harder to get. But that is also part of the fun.
