This dates from the mid 1970s and is as new boxed condition. It has a mechanical bell ringer and is a delightful little telephone that is very solid with a good weight to the handset and a dial action that is smooth and silky. It is tiny but solid with a standard size handpiece. This is a telephone of real quality and such a lovely deign. If you like it buy it as I have never had another and doubt I will ever have another. I fell in love with this and if not a dealer would have kept this myself. Fully working to dial out and receive perfectly. Would be ideal if you are a modern designer and to be different.
