Antique 1900/1910's Black and Bronze English GPO Candlestick Telephone
This is the finest example of a working GPO #150 original antique candlestick. The body is black enamelled and the mouth piece is bakelite. The phone has a flex wire from the earpiece to the base and a bell ringer inserted in the base. We have not touched up the iron base to retain the authenticity of the piece. This telephone can be hooked up to an original wooden bell box for an extra £125. Please note that this is an original phone from the 1900/1910s, and will have some wear and tear.
Behind the bakelite mouthpiece above the collar are the marks

All our antique telephones are fully stripped down, polished & rewired with hand platted cords in our workshop near Oxford , England. The phones have all original fittings inside and we try to keep all the original parts wherever possible. They come fitted with a standard British connection & all International customers ( USA, Europe, Asia Etc) will be provided with a RJ11 adapter, so the customer can use the phone on any fixed analogue telephone line.
