iPhone cradle looks like an old-school landline phone

Someone is selling on the Etsy catalog hand-made iPhone bases that look like old-fashioned landline phones. Called the iRetrofone Base, the charging stations come in a variety of styles, and cost $195. Useful only as a charging and syncing cradle, they're as function-limited as they are pointless.

$15 to SHIP. The item actually costs $195.

And it's not an accurate reproduction. From the shape, it appears to be a Wester Electric 302, from 1937. But it has a coiled cord, which wasn't used until about 2 decades later.
