This telephone is a wonderful example of a GPO No150 and dated 1929. 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. Because the brass parts plating was not in good condition I have polished them back to the brass and copper flashing. Not re plating these items saves a lot of money and so can be sold at a cheaper price. The black body and base has been re painted and lacquered. The dial is a GPO No12 with alpha numeric dial face and stainless steel finger wheel. It retains its original braided cord to the ear piece and body and is in great condition. Candlestick telephones are usually operated from electronics in the bell set but I have fitted a pulse to tone unit and electronic microphone allowing it to work perfectly without one. This allows you to use the ring from your existing telephones or simply plug a bell into a double socket. You can add a BT50E wall bell to give you a loud mechanical bell sound. The advantage to this is also that you can plug the bell into any socket in the house and it will operate as though attached to the telephone.  I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
