Antique/vtg Original Bakelite 1930s Art Deco Pyramid Telephone 300 Series L@@k :
BLACK BAKELITE GPO PYRAMID TELEPHONE
99p Start !!!!
This is a beautiful example of an old Art Deco Pyramid Telephone.
Prior to 1981 the UKs Telephone network was both owned and run by the GPO ( General Post Office ), and subscribers has to rent their phone as well as line rental.
This is an early example of a series 300.
On the Handset is inscribed GPO 39/234 No 164.
On the base, 332L FWR 60/2 E2 GPO BATCH SAMPLED 6368.
The dimensions of the phone are approx 5" High, 5.4" Wide, 7.4" Deep, Weighs 2482g.
Overall the Bakelite remains in lovely condition with just one small chip to earpiece.
The beautiful Chrome Dial operates with a pleasing purr and clunk....
There is the original Red & Black alpha numerical backplate against an Ivory coloured background.
I phoned this model with my mobile and the Rare internal bells had that super Vintage Ring...
At some point an element of conversion has been carried out as it will receive calls but will not make them, I have been advised by a Telephone restorer that it is likely to need further conversion to be able to make outgoing calls.
Hence this being priced at a 99p Start as opposed to a Buy It Now of well over £100 as other similiar examples on right now.
This phone has the beautiful, Clean cut Art Deco Styling and is as much as a piece of Art as well as a practical item,
UK Mainland Courier will be £7.99, Any overseas buyers wishing to place a offer please contact me PRIOR for a shipping quote, ta.
