In my opinion the most elegantly designed Bakelite wall telephone.

This is a fabulous Siemens Brothers of Woolwich wall telephone. It was designed in the early 1930s and is a very beautiful item. Very much in the style of the Neophone desk set and the GPO 162 of the period. This one is all original both inside and out with any parts replaced using period parts from another broken for spares. I have fitted an electronic microphone and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone socket. I have stripped this telephone down and rebuilt it after each part has been cleaned and polished.  The dial has then been oiled and set up to the correct speed and the contacts adjusted to operate correctly. To do this properly it has been set up on a special line simulator test unit until it met the requirements of the machine. This telephone retains an original Siemens handset cord which is a very rare find and suggests minimal use. It also has its original No10 numerical dial with stainless steel finger wheel and enamel number dial back. This has a few minor cracks but still in great condition. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra cost.
