Fabulous as found condition. The cords have some fraying but other than it is in great as found condition. No restoration carried out other than a light coat of bees wax. It looks to be complete and original. I would guess it is 1930s and came from a railway signal box. Imagine the history this has seen from the glorious age of steam. I am often told not to convert these lovely old telephones to work with a dial and add a bell etc. If no takers this will be restored for modern use to have a new life. So if a collector now is your chance. See the high quality pictures to see the condition. I will note the cords have some fraying. This is being sold as a non working collectors telephone.
