Early wall mounted telephone

  • Description

Circa 1900 in as found condition

Gone for restoration and upgrade for modern use.

As you can see this has not been restored by me in any way. The ear piece bell receiver has a chip on the screw on top and in the coating on brass. It has some batteries in the box below and a note dated 1979 as pictured below. It has a nice patina and is un-restored and not working. I thought this should be offered as a collectors item before it goes to restoration to have a dial and modern internal wiring board fitted. It is in very good as found condition when you think it is probably over 100 years old. It has one of the lightning conductor washers missing but only a very minor problem. Pick up is recommended as to pack and post will cost me a mornings work.
