This telephone has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. It is fitted with a very best quality all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. It has a beautiful GPO No10 stainless steel finger dial and enamel alpha numeric dial face. It has been fully tested to dial out and receive perfectly on both a special line simulator and our own BT telephone line. It has been fitted with a small internal bell that can be removed at a later date leaving no damage to the the telephone. The bell gives a pleasant ring but not very loud and so ideal in a bedroom or in conjunction with other telephones in the house. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. It has a quality replacement drawer base case. The mouthpiece is very slightly lighter but not noticeable.
