Siemens Brothers of Woolwich model 312

  • Description

One of two I have in stock. I can go for many months without one in stock and they are getting very hard to find in this condition.

 

This is one of my favourite telephones and one of two I have managed to get my hands on. Designed and made by Siemens Brothers of Woolwich.  As you can see the design is just magnificent and you cannot fail to be impressed. I believe this model dates from the early 1930s and it certainly has the deco looks. It is all original both inside and out and it retains the GPO No 10 dial with its original enamel dial face. This telephone often suffers from fractures to the side in manufacture and this one has none. One of the best you will find for a telephone of this age. This telephone was stripped down and rebuilt after each part was cleaned and polished. It has been set up to work using a special line simulator to enable the dial to be set up correctly. The telephone was then tested on my BT line to make sure it was working perfectly. I have fitted it with a best quality British made hand plaited braided handset cord. A GPO specification round line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket, an electronic microphone and replacement 200 series feet. This telephone is ready to simply plug in and go. I can fit a dial label with your details in either Siemens label format or GPO please state which you require on check out your notice to us. This is a very sought after model and so I can assure you it will not be here long. I always search these out and they sell very fast.
