This is a very rare and sought after GPO crested drawer. These were fitted to coloured telephones dated 1938 but were also used after this date. One story I had heard is that lady subscribers asking for a coloured telephone would often have one fitted. May be a myth but I have heard this story many times from different sources over the years. This is the only one I have sold because i have always saved them for my own collection or for the very best coloured pyramids. This is one of the best you will find with only the most minor of scratching. It needs a total strip down to clean properly which I have not done. The sleeve part is original with the metal strip to the left side. It is yellowed but perfectly usable.
