This is a very nice example of a GPO 1/232F with drawer. It has a genuine GPO No12 Figure dial and has been fitted with a very best quality hand plaited reproduction braided handset cord, a GPO specification round plastic line in cable with UK telephone plug fitting and an electronic microphone. The handset is marked dated 1954. This telephone has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. It has been fully tested on a special line simulator to enable the dial to be set up correctly both mechanically and electrically. This telephone is now ready to simply plug in and go. This model has no internal bell and so I would recommend using it in conjunction with a GEC wall mounted GEC No 64d giving a full blooded double bell ring and looks great or the cheaper BT50E for the perfect mechanical bell sound. I can fit a small bell inside at no extra cost but the bell sound is not loud and would be ideal in a bedroom etc. If the either of the wall mounted bell options are bought with this telephone I will not charge for postage and packing on the extra bell chosen. I can make a dial label at no extra charge and don’t forget this comes with our lifetime of ownership guarantee.
