A very nice example. The plaiting on the brass parts is original and so is not perfect as you can see form the pictures.

This telephone is a wonderful example of a GPO No150 with a wooden wall bell set. As you can see it looks fabulous and has been totally stripped down and and rebuilt after each part has been restored to the best it can be. The brass parts holding the mouth piece to the body and the earpiece switch hook were in good enough condition to be hand restored and without the need for expensive re plating. As you can see they are not mint but in good hand restored condition. The black body and base has been refinished to perfection and the rubber on the base to protect your furniture has been replaced. It is fitted with the very best available hand plaited brown braided cords to the bell set and ear piece. Candlestick telephones are operated from electronics in the bell set. This one has had a GPO induction coil fitted and wired up correctly to allow the telephone to work properly. The bell box is a beautiful well made GPO No1a. I have fitted an electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up top modern standards. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
