This is a very nice example of a GPO 1/232 on a No 26 bellset. The bellset part is a modern replacement made to exact GPO specifications. As you can see it is slightly lighter in colour but this shows up mainly because it has been photographed under studio conditions to get as near perfect pictures as possible. In normal lighting it will not be so obvious. The telephone is totally original other than the handset cord, electronic microphone and line in cord. The handset is marked 164-56 and the base is marked 1/232 S55/2. It has no damage and as you can see looks magnificent. The drawer base under the bellset is also lighter than the body and handset but this will never be seen as it is under the bellset and is how it came.
It has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. I have fitted a best quality hand plaited braided handset cord, a handmade bellset to telephone line cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification line in with a UK plug socket.
This telephone is ready to plug in and go and as you can see is a wonderful item. If the bellset were original the price would be between £830-£875 and so this is a superb buy at £695.
I will make a dial label with your information at no extra cost. Please email me if you want to view before you buy and I will reserve it for you.
