  • Description

Rare and sought after top of the range model with three buttons bell on bell off and microphone mute.

Sold

This is a wonderful black 314L with drawer. It is the top of the range with three buttons “Bell on Bell Off” and Call Exchange”. The bell on bell off is fully working with the correct mechanism and is a very useful feature. The Call exchange was used for shared lines and is no longer used on the modern system and so I have wired this up as a microphone mute button. This is a rare model and is also quite collectable. The dial is a genuine GPO No 12 metal backed alpha numeric and not a later cheaper dial fitted to so many of the telephones I see being sold. This one is in beautiful condition as you can see and dated 1955 on the handset and 1954 on the base. Base markings are 314L TE54 /2A and the handset 164 55. I have fitted this one with a best quality hand plaited all British manufactured braided handset cord, an electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up to modern standards and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone socket. This is ready to simply plug in and go. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra cost.
