Gpo Black 232 Bakelite Telephone Te37 On Bellset 26 For SaleGPO BLACK 232 BAKELITE TELEPHONE TE37 on BELLSET 26
This item has been relisted due to a previous non-paying buyer.
This telephone is converted and ready for use. It is a beautiful example, in lovely condition.
The handset is marked "G.P.O. TE37 234 No. 164" and the base has "No. 1/232F G.P.O. TE37/1".
It is fitted with a chrome alpha-numeric no. 10 dial, and an original plaited handset cord. The bellset cord is a top-quality reproduction. The line cord is a plastic BT-type, brown to match the other cords, and it is fitted with a useful bell on/off switch so you can turn the bell off quickly if needed.
The telephone gives a nice loud ring from its genuine GPO no. 26 twin-gong bellset. It is fitted with an original receiver and microphone.
The dial and drawer are fitted with reproduction inserts. If preferred, I can produce a personalised dial label for you, with your exchange and number. I have a GPO no. 5 number stamp which I can use for this.
This telephone has some superficial surface marks from its 76 years of use. There is also a small chip to the body beneath the dial finger-stop. There is a very tiny crack to the dial backplate above the "0". This is barely noticeable. There is a tiny chip to the inner rim of the mouthpiece. The handset grip has a stress line on one side (see photo).
