This one is a lovely example and quite unusual in so much as it was made without the facility for a drawer. The bells are made from steel and the the handset mouthpiece location is made from what looks like aluminium? The internals are marked 1943 and so I imagine materials were very scares and so made from what they had. The handset is marked PL 44 / GPO/No 164/ 1 and the base is marked 332 CB PL/44/1 and APPVD 2138. Internals marked 332 CB PL/43/1. I have fitted a best quality all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord, a GPO specification round plastic line in cord and an electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. I am not selling this as a collectors telephone but have listed the information above as it is unusual and interesting to some people. I can only imagine the problems with getting materials to make telephones in 1943 when the war was still on any land-line network. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
