Free pulse to tone converter fitted to allow this telephone to work on any telephone line!



Now this is another absolute beauty!

Originally used on the railways or in a working/office enviroment and maybe even in servants quarters, who knows.

A solid mahogany box jointed case, external chrome bells and black finger dial set this telephone off, it looks gorgeous. 


It has been dismantled and cleaned and it comes with all of its original wear and blemishes that have taken place in the last 90 years or so, understandably it may have had a bit of paintwork in the past. One of our own cloth covered line cords has been fitted and a black replacement finger dial. The Transmitter has been updated to an electronic one to enhance performance but the external appearance of the bakelite handset has been retained.


Originally you would pick up the handset, turn the handle and this would ring the bell on the other telephone or exchange whichever was connected to it. Fabulous!

When a telephone comes to us for repair / restoration sometimes it is a little difficult to decide 'how far to go' with the renovation process. We try to keep as many original parts as possible and to retain its 'used look'.

Our main objective is to 'revive' as many of the telephones we have and to get them fully functioning again for modern day use so they can be used again for many generations to come.


 A flush fitting dial was probably first added to this telephone in the 1940's-50's which has now been replaced and we have added internal parts to allow it to function safely and reliably  and to look beautiful wherever this telephone is displayed or used. We have retained all of the original parts internally , and hidden any modern components inside. 

The approximate dimensions are height 39cm, depth  23cm, width (including handset and magneto handle) 38cm.


This telephone is a real gem, please look at all the photographs to see all its original detail and character, a genuine old telephone that has been saved and one that externally has retained its history.

All you have to do is plug it into your telephone socket, use it and admire it.
