This is a beautiful example of a GPO 1/232L with drawer. The handset is dated 1956. It has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The dial has been set up to work on both BT and cable networks using a special line simulator. It has a Genuine GPO No10 stainless steel fronted enamel alpha numeric dial face. The No1 has rubbed off but I didn't want to change it as it is a rare item. If you prefer a perfect reproduction add that in the notice to us and I will fit a perfect reproduction. It is fitted with a very best quality hand plaited braided handset cord, a very high quality "D" shaped plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket and an electronic microphone to bring the speech 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. Ideal for a bedroom or in a sitting room. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. This is ready to plug in and go. I can fit a dial label with your information at no extra charge. Add the details in the checkout system.

A note to mention is that most providers including BT are moving over to Voip systems and so if you want to future proof the ability to dial out I would recommend having the pulse to tone unit fitted. If you just want to receive calls then it will be fine. Fitting a pulse to tone unit to this model requires some non standard internal wiring and the dial loom will be removed as the unit has its own. If you want these returned please make quite clear in the checkout notice to us.
