Beautiful fully restored and working GPO 312L with drawer.

This is a beautiful example of a GPO 312L with drawer. The colour has slightly whitened over time and looks wonderful.  The handset base and chassis are all dated 1954. It has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The dial has also been rebuilt and the contacts cleaned and tested. Then set up on a special line simulator to allow to work on both BT and cable networks. I have fitted a very best quality hand plaited ivory braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and best quality round shaped plastic line in with a UK telephone plug socket. Please note that these are genuine GPO telephones 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. It has a genuine GPO No 12 with an alpha numeric enamel dial face which is very rare to find. Take a look at the pictures and you will see the number 1 is ever so slightly faint. I can change this for a new perfect plastic one at no extra charge if preferred. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. Your own information can be entered on the checkout system.
