A very rare telephone to find in this condition

Sold

This is one the best Ivory Bakelite (urea formaldehyde) telephones you will find. It is dated 1935 on the handset and has no damage or repairs. It unusually has no stress cracks in the handset. The "T" bar and base are slightly lighter in colour. I have fitted a best quality hand plaited British manufactured braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. It has the later 232 internals to allow it to work perfectly without the need for a No1 or N025 bell set. It has a wonderful figure only enamel faced No10 GPO dial. It is fully working to both dial out and receive perfectly and a small bell can be fitted inside if required as this model would have originally bell used with a wall mounted bell set. the bell can me remover later without any damage to the telephone. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
