This is an unusual early telephone.

This is a very old European candlestick telephone. Unlike the UK model this is very usable in that it has a handset. It is dated 1924 as you can see on the handset plate. I have fitted a UK dial with a chromed plastic finger dial which enable a UK GPO dial label to be fitted perfectly. I have updated the internals for perfect modern use including an electronic microphone. The handset cord is a black braided cloth type. It will dial out and receive perfectly and has a small internal bell fitted. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra cost. The handset is 84 years old and so has some browning but I think this adds to the appeal.  It is ready to simply plug in and go. PS many hours of hard work has gone into this restoration.

  I can fit a watch receiver to the rear if required at extra cost.

I will make a dial label with your information at no extra cost.

Postage and packing to any UK address is £20.
