This is an unusual and rare telephone. Dated 1936 this is of a period when they were mixing Urea Formaldehyde thermo setting materials with the then new Acrylics Diakon. The hand grip is Diakon and marked ATM and the ear, mouthpiece, cradle T bar and body are Urea Formaldehyde. The bell set is a very rare Siemens 310 in Diakon acrylic. At the time the parts would have been identical in colour but the Diakon parts have darkened over the years. This is how I got the telephone and wanted to keep as it came and wonder if the bell set was with the telephone from new. This I would think is quite possible as ATM were a private supplier as were Siemens and so may have privately supplied a company with this set up. This one had some damage to the cradle T bar and bell set but has been resin repaired to near perfection. Honestly I could not see the repairs even when pointed out. I spent a lot of money saving this telephone because it is so very rare. Please arrange to come and inspect it before purchase if you need to see it first. It is now fully working and with an electronic microphone and best quality hand plaited braided handset cord and GPO specification round plastic line in cord. I have fitted new feet and it retains a GPO enamel figure dial in wonderful condition. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
