This is a genuine GPO No150 candlestick telephone. It was manufactured by Plessey in 1930 for the GPO. This telephone has been totally stripped down. This included removing all the paint and then reassembled after being sent away to be professionally re-Finished to a perfect gloss finish and in as new condition. The earpiece has been polished back to its original deep black gloss and retains all its original internals except for the modern electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. The original GPO receiver unit is still in place as this still performs to a very good standard. I have had this one Nickel plated to add to the wonderful contrast between the black Finnish and the to match the chrome dial. Please be assured this is not a reproduction but the genuine article. This really is a stunning telephone and not one to hide in a dark corner but to display and enjoy. The dial is a genuine GPO No12 with figure dial face. this has been fitted with a network card and small internal bell to eliminate the need for a wooden bell box. This was modified to order.
This telephone is ready to plug in and go and will dial out and receive perfectly on modern telephone lines.
