A handsome black Bakelite desk telephone with combination bell set, in genuinely immaculate condition ready to plug in and use. The telephone retains its clean glossy surface free of chips, scratches or any other damage. It has a pull out drawer complete with clear cellulose wallet to keep your important numbers in. It has the original plaited cloth covered handset cord with no signs of wear. The line cord is a brand new brown cloth covered 2.5 metres long to match the ‘phone. It has a standard PSTN jack ready to plug in and go. The desk telephone has been fully reconditioned by a qualified telephone engineer and is compliant with current telephony standards. It is a genuine original British GPO item made by Plessey in 1946.

Technical info
 
The telephone has been updated with the following internal components:  An up to date transmitter for clear outgoing speech (original carbon unit packed with ‘phone and can be easily re-fitted if the thin 1940’s sound is required!) A resistor added to the bell circuit to maintain the correct REN value and a transient diode fitted in order to prevent annoying acoustic ‘pops’ found with early telephones.
The dial is a number 10 ‘slipping cam’ type, most favoured by collectors. It runs smoothly and has been re-calibrated with modern test equipment.
 
Dial number card
 
The telephone has its original “Liberty” card fitted. However, a separate reproduction card can be supplied printed with your exchange (or dialling code) and private number if requested. There’s no extra charge for this.
