To celebrate the Queens Jubilee in 1977 two telephones were short listed to go in to production and this beat the other contender a 'Jubilee Trimphone' hands down.

We have never seen one of these in this condition - ever. An absolute stunning example!

A lovely Balmoral deep blue body with a Balmoral blue numbered dial plate finished with a lovely embossed silver and blue crest in the dial centre. Delightful.

 

The 776 Compact was first introduced to solve the problems of available space in customers homes. Its design allowed the telephone to sit on window ledges and shelves with a foot print of only 13.5cm x 14cm  (excluding handset) compared to a standard  GPO  706 or 746 telephone which measures 14.5 x 21.5cm !

 

 The Compact model has an external bell box making the telephone  smaller so it would fit pretty much anywhere. Mount the bell box on a skirting board or wall with the bracket enclosed and then sit the telephone on your desk, shelf, window ledge or work bench. As the telephone is connected to the bell box with a curly cord the telephone can be up to 3 metres away.

 

Original plastics, bell set and original curly cords. We have upgraded it to one of our own electronic transmitters.

 

What a fabulous telephone in beautiful original condition.
