314 Bell on Bell off Call exchange model.
A beautiful telephone dated 1948. 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 handset is dated 1948. It has a GPO No12 dial with an enamel face. This face has a few hairline cracks but still very nice. I can change this for a perfect plastic one at no extra charge but make sure you add this in the information to us in the checkout system.  This 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.
