  • Description
Plug in and go Genuine G.E.C. candlestick and genuine GPO wooden bell set.

This telephone is a wonderful example of a G.E.C. candlestick with daffodil head. Note it has some imperfections but still very nice. As you can see it looks fabulous and has been totally stripped down and and rebuilt after each part has been restored to the best it can be. The brass fittings have been polished back and look great. It has an inscription on the brass head holder as you can see. Not re plating these items saves a lot of money and so can be sold at a cheaper price. The black body and base is in near perfect condition. The dial is a GPO No10 with an enamel numeric dial face and stainless steel finger wheel. I have fitted very best quality braided cords to the earpiece and a five foot braided cord to the bell set. The bell set is dated 1924 and made from solid mahogany. It started life as a rare GPO No5 and was later converted to a No1A. I have simply waxed and polished it and so leaving some patina from its nearly 100 years of age. This will give the beautiful loud double gong bell ring and ideally situated in a hallway to resonate around the house. Candlestick telephones are usually operated from electronics in the bell set but I have fitted a pulse to tone unit and electronic microphone allowing it to work perfectly without one and so will work on any telephone supplier and Voip system. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
