Signature Princess Telephone
This is a telephone. It was after Henry Dreyfuss Associates. It is dated 1993 and we acquired it in 1994. Its medium is compression-molded abs plastic, metal, electronic components. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
AT&T released the Signature Princess line of telephones after young women expressed renewed interest in the original 1959 design; the 1993 re-release features lighted touchtone push buttons instead of the original rotary dial. Both the Princess and the Signature Princess came in a variety of colors, but the pastel models were the most popular.
