Wow! What a beautiful coloured telephone.

The 776 Compact was first introduced to solve the problems of available space in customers homes. This design allowed the telephone to sit on window ledges and shelves and as the other Compact models had an external bell box this telephone would fit pretty much anywhere.


What is so special about this model is it is a 'wall mount', ( it is sitting on a plinth for the photgraphs, it will not sit on a desk or shelf due to the cable exit points).

The telephone sits on its own 'shelf bracket' which houses the external bell set. You can leave the telephone on the shelf or you can lift it off the shelf and with its fully extendable cord the telephone can be upto 3 metres away from the bell set.

We have managed to salvage both of its original curly cords and we have upgraded it to an electronic transmitter.

If you look at the picture showing the left hand side of the telephone you will see a pale white line on the bottom left hand corner of the case, this is where it has been strained a little either by placing it on or removing it from its wall bracket in the past.

We do not see this as an imperfection, it is purely part of the history of what is a fabulous telephone in beautiful original condition and a rare find in this colour too!
