Very rare red GPO 162 on a No25 bell set

  • Description

This is incredibly rare and dated 1934


This is one of the hardest items to find. Made in 1934 and marked FH34 on the handset. It has had some quite major repairs but these been have done by an expert in the field using a resin compound. This means now it is repaired you can polish and clean to your harts delight with no danger of loosing the surface. It has absolutely no paint and looks fabulous. It has some stress lines here and there as they all do. The parts that have been repaired are the handset around the mouthpiece rims, earpiece, mouthpiece, cradle and bellset. I have not photographed the repairs because you cannot see them without very close inspection. You would need to see this telephone to assess for yourself but it really is wonderful. The telephone has been stripped down cleaned repaired and re assembled. it has been wired up to work perfectly and has a best quality all British manufactured and hand plaited braided handset and line in cord. It has a red BT20 and then a 3 meter GPO specification round plastic line in with a UK telephone plug socket. This telephone is ready to plug in and go and is fully working. I haven't seen a perfect example of one of these for many years and so this may be your only chance to own one. Note it has a lovely genuine GPO dial label and not a copy. Please don't miss this if interested as you are unlikely to ever see another.
