Yes this is fully working to both dial out and receive. This one is sold and now pre orders are Frances and Young. We are not taking any more orders until we have more stock. This may take some time.

Sold out.

 

Take a look at this magnificent telephone. It dates from the early 1900s and has been restored to this exceptional condition. As you can see it is a real work of art and would be the centre piece of any fine home from this period. When I commissioned the restoration I made it clear that it should be made to work to both dial out and receive perfectly and so it has a GPO No 10 dial and an electronic microphone fitted. Wherever possible original parts have been used but as you can imagine things have moved on a little since 1910 and so some parts have been upgraded using some later GPO electronics.

   This telephone has surpassed my expectations by a mile and it is one of the most beautiful pieces you will see. Just to recap this is a genuine telephone made around 1910 and has been restored and updated to work on a UK telephone line to both dial out and receive perfectly. As you can see a vast amount of skilled time and knowledge has gone into this telephone and once this one is sold it will be a while until I have another ready for sale. As you can imagine 1910 telephones don’t turn up every day to be able to restore.
