The final installment of our 3-part series about 80s phones.

Neon phones. Most had a switch so you could choose for steady-on neon, or neon that flashed when the phone was ringing.

Photos #1, 2, and 3 - Cicena “Rhonda” phones (also came in blue)

Photos #4, 5, and 6 - Cicena “Roxanne” phones (also came in green)

Photo #7 - RadioShack “Krystalite” phone (also came in pink)

Photo #8 - Another RadioShack phone, don’t know what this model was called

Photo #9 - Cicena “Sheila” phone

Photo #10 - Another (later?) version of the Cicena “Sheila” phone. I got one of this version NOS off eBay recently. Slightly smaller diameter than the Sheila from photo #9, and the receiver hangs straight down instead of at a 45-degree angle.

Cicena “Cleo” bookshelf speakers. They neon could be set to steady-on, or flash in time with the music.

A rectangular version, called the “Billie Jean”, was also available.

Cicena made several neon housewares in the late 80s: clocks, radios, phones, and speakers. Each product was named after a person.

Top: Cicena “Anna” clock from the late 1980s. Personally, I prefer the two-tone look, as well as the colored hands with the rounded ends.

The other 3 photos: Cicena “Diana” clocks, in various colors, from the same era. The Diana was the cheaper, one-color version of the Anna.
