  • Description

This is marked 314 on the base and dated 1954 on the handset and base and is one of the most sought after 300 series models. This one has a couple of small cracks around the dial. You would never see them unless I pointed them out.

A pulse to tone unit can be fitted at £40 click box on check out. 


314 Bell on Bell off Call exchange model. Discounted
A beautiful all original telephone dated 1954. This telephone has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. It has the correct internal switching unit and is fully wired up to work correctly with bell on bell off buttons. The Bell On Bell Off button label can be changed for a new one if desired in the check out. The handset is dated 1954 as is the base. It has a GPO No12 with alpha numeric face and the dial has been set up using a special line simulator to make sure it will work on both cable and copper wire networks. It has been tested on our own BT line to make sure it is working perfectly. As you can see this is a very nice example of a very sought after telephone. I have fitted a quality new braided hand plaited handset cord manufactured in the UK. I have fitted an electronic microphone and best quality "D" shape plastic line in with a UK telephone plug socket. Please note that this is a genuine GPO telephone from the 1950s and although I restore to the highest of standards they have been in use for over 60 years and can never be described as mint. The bell on bell off buttons are fully working and wired up through the original mechanical internal switch mechanism. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
