This was the second handset telephone produced by Western Electric, USA. It followed the model 102 and the iconic candlestick telephone which had been in use for over 30 years. It has a D1 oval metal base and a bakelite E1 handset, much sought after in the USA.
The dial is a smooth running number 4, the pulses being converted into the tones needed for modern telephony (DTMF) including last number redial, star & hash. A further 7 favourite numbers can be stored in the telephone.
The Bell Set is a GPO 59A wall mounting having a standard magneto bell at REN 1. It has a plastic cover which has been factory coated in red to match the telephone.
The telephone is connected to the Bell Set with 10 feet of cloth covered cord. The Bell set has a further 10 feet of cloth cord terminated in a standard BT plug. This would allow for adequate positioning in most cases. The handset cord is of finest quality, plaited 3 feet long, made in the UK and finished in Egyption cotton.
The telephone is fully compliant with modern telephony practice and comes with a full one year guarantee. Lifetime support is also offered should a defect occur at a later date.
