This is as good as you will find. I don't have any more in stock and so this will probably be the only one for sale this year.

Beautiful solid mahogany 1920s quality.

Sold Order No 11271

 

This is a genuine GPO 121 on its original GPO backboard. It has had no expense spared in the restoration process and is now as good as it can be. It came to me in very good as found condition and so is all original. I am not  a specialist restorer of wood and so it was sent to be totally stripped and all the wood was cleaned and re polished. All the parts have been removed cleaned and restored and then re assembled. The electronics have been fully tested and are all original from the 1920s bar an electronic microphone and a UK GPO specification round plastic line in. It has a beautiful and rare to find GPO dial No10 with a solid copper dial and GPO black plated. This has not been re finished but cleaned and restored keeping its total originality. It has its original enamel face in wonderful condition. Please note the early daffodil metal mouthpiece as opposed to the later and more common Bakelite type. I have spent a lot of money and time on this restoration but I think it was worth every penny. This will come with my lifetime of ownership guarantee for peace of mind.

This is ready to simply plug in and go and will dial out and recieve perfectly. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
