Literature

The Elvis phone illustrated in the Blue Drawing Room, The Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth, The House, London, 2002, p. 173

The Duchess writes, 'A friend in New York gave me the Elvis telephone. 'Jail House Rock' comes over loud and clear instead of a bell or the more modern noise that announces a call'.
