A beautiful telephone


This is a wonderful example of a GPO 1/232 with drawer. It has been totally stripped down and reassembled after each part has been cleaned and polished. This telephone is all original and even retains its genuine GPO braided handset cord (hens teeth) and it retains its GPO No12 alpha numeric dial. All the parts are a perfect colour match and the dates on the handset are 1954 and on the base 1955. It has an electronic microphone fitted for perfect modern use and has the better receiver capsule. I have fitted a GPO specification round plastic line in with a UK telephone plug socket. This one has had a small repair done with my own fair hands. I have inserted a small piece of plastic from the same period and it is very hard to see. I photographed this in the final picture. This telephone is priced to take this into account. I was qualified toolmaker for over 25 years and so am able to do this kind of work if needed. I always disclose any repairs like this. All in all this is a wonderful telephone and all original. It is fully tested to dial out and receive perfectly and is fitted with a small bell inside as this model was designed to go with a large external bell. This is ready to simply plug in and go.
