Landmark Creations has created a delightful hand-painted blown glass ornament that depicts the beloved red phone booths that dot the British landscape. This ornament is a delightful way to remember a landmark that may soon pass into history. Telecommunications professionals may find this to be the perfect co-worker holiday gift.

"I'll give you a ring." No, not the kind you put on your finger. In England, to give one a "ring" is to give them a telephone call. In Landmark's telephone box, Sherlock Holmes is giving Dr. Watson a ring. It's hard to believe, but the first public telephone was invented in 1878! The little red telephone boxes were once mixed in with London's collection of lamp posts, traffic lights, benches, letter posts, wrought-iron fences, littered with garbage and city grit. Progress begets progress and unfortunately the famous telephone boxes are more difficult to find these days, having been replaced by the British Telecom. This holiday season add a bit of nostalgia to your tree with the London Phone Booth ornament.
