This is a wonderful little piece of history.

As you can see this is a very beautiful little Bakelite wall telephone. Manufactured in the Automatic Telephone Company in Liverpool. It has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. This one is totally original internally as well. Note the GPO No25 bell set in conjunction with GPO 162 telephone internal electronics from 1935. A wonderful telephone and not often seen in this condition. It retains the original ATM enamel faced dial and with no damage to the enamel. I have fitted this with a nice long best quality all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord. I have also fitted an electronic microphone and a 1950s receiver capsule to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. It has a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. This is ready to simply plug in and go which is quite amazing as it is using 1935 technology with only a few modern upgrades as listed above. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
