This has its original rare crested GPO drawer.

SOLD Mr Smith

I haven’t had an Ivory 1/232 for a long time now. This model and colour is one of my favourite telephones and is so elegant.  This one is dated 1938 and is in great condition. It still retains its rare original GPO crested drawer. This was fitted to coloured pyramid telephones from this date but few survive with them. The colour has bleached to a more white than ivory colour over its 71 years and I have fitted a replacement cradle. It retains its original GPO No 10 dial with its original enamel faced alpha numeric dial back in perfect condition. It has been fitted with a best quality hand plaited braided cord and a GPO specification round plastic line in with a UK telephone plug fitting. It has also been fitted with an electronic microphone and perfect GPO specification replacement white feet. The cradle is a more ivory colour than the rest of the telephone but as you can see it looks fantastic. Please note these pictures were taken in studio conditions and under normal lighting it looks wonderful. This model was not made with an internal bell and so you can opt to buy a wall mounted GEC 64d with a double socket at £40 extra or simply use the sound from your other telephones. I can fit a small internal bell if requested at no extra cost. This will not give a very loud ring but is ideal in a bedroom environment.

Postage and packing is £20 to any UK address.
