This is a fabulous example of a GPO 121L. It has been fully restored without losing its wonderful original patina. This one is a lovely dark wood example and as you can see is in great condition. It has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and restored. The wiring has been tidied up and a coil No 27 and an electronic microphone has been fitted to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. It has been set up to work using a special line simulator and then tested on our own BT land line. It has a GPO No 10 dial with a very rare alpha numeric dial face. The back is marked 1928 and I still find it amazing that a telephone of this age can survive and work just as it was made all those years ago. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. I hope this one goes to good home to last another 86 years. We don’t make things of this quality now I am afraid.
