Sold

This one has been restored from quite a poor condition back to a beautiful working telephone. The time spent on this one is not really viable but I love these old early GPO models. The telephone has been totally stripped down and each part has been cleaned and lovingly restored. Some of the parts have been replaced with parts from other GPO telephones break for spares. As yo can see it is now quite wonderful and this one has all original black GPO finish parts and so have some signs of use. When I had the wood restored I made a point not to have all the knocks and scratches taken out. It would have been just as easy to do this but I wanted to show some of the years off life without it looking tatty. As you can see it looks wonderful and has a wonderful patina. It has been wired up to work perfectly to both dial out and receive. It has an electronic microphone a new hand plaited all British made ear piece cord. The line in is a GPO specification round plastic 3 meter cord with a UK telephone plug socket. This is ready to simply plug in and go. If you like it please don't hesitate as each restoration of this quality is unique and will differ from the next. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
