Please read the whole listing.



A lovely example of the Protea telephone.

These are fabulous compact telephones that pack a real punch!

Unusual as they sound just like a Trimphone to alert you of an incoming call, a warble sound rather than a bell ringing and this is emitted from the transmitter (microphone) on the handset when it is on the hook! ( please see video). 



Fully renovated and ready to place in any room in your home or office. 

This is a lovely jet black telephone and if you compare it to the size of a GPO   telephone it is considerably smaller. An approximate 'foot print' of only 20cm by 11cm wide.

Fully renovated, rewired,calibrated and now fitted with a pulse to tone converter - you have everything!


With having now been fitted with a pulse to tone converter this will plug into any Bt telephone socket and work with any telephone provider.

Ideal for telephone banking and other tone selection menu services.


Go on, replace one of your cordless land line phones with a piece of nostalgia. Even as an ornament they look amazing and we guarantee the two questions you will be asked are, “Does it work?” and “Is it old?” and with our telephones you can reply “ Yes it’s a Ronnie Retro!”
