This is a beautiful example. It has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. This telephone retains its original GPO No12 dial with a wonderful alpha numeric face. It is fitted with a very best all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord and a GPO specification round plastic ivory 3 meter line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. I have also fitted an electronic microphone to bring the sound quality up to modern standards. This model was designed to be fitted to a GPO No 26 bell set and so had no internal bell. I have fitted a small bell inside that gives a very pleasant ring but not very loud. This one has been heavily discounted due to some minor imperfections. The cradle has been replaced by a fabulous quality reproduction and some slight mismatch in colour. Not always disclosed by some dealers. Ideal for a bedroom or in a sitting room. The handset is dated 1954 and base marked 1955. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
