  • Description

A rare Ivory GEC Muraphone. The Bakelite parts are the best you will find and pure white. Sold - Andrew.

 

This is a wonderful design as you can see. The condition of the Bakelite type material is as good as they come with no discolouration and no damage. The colour is pure white and they best you will ever see. The photographs do not do it justice but I assure you it is white. the handset is marked G.E.C. made in England. It has been fitted with 4000 ohm bell coils to bring the Ren value down to one. It has a GPO No 12 dial and has a beautiful double gong ring. This telephone has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. It has been converted to work perfectly on a modern system using the original internals. I have fitted a best quality ivory all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a 3 meter long GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. As you can see the base is original and has some surface rusting but I wanted to keep it unpainted etc. A truly wonderful piece of design working history. This would date 1940s-1950s. This one is late 1950s and probably came from a top class hotel. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
