1940's Red Belgium Antique Wall Telephone
This original metal bodied wall mounted bell telephone was made in Antwerp, Belgium in the 1950's. On both sides of the body they have "Bell Telephones Antwerp" inscribed in gold. We have fitted it with a black original looking cord which blends beautifully with the body. The telephone is in superb condition for its age and ready to use on a normal telephone line. The back cover prises open and you have to screw the back directly on to the wall. The phone has a wonderful load old bell when there is an incoming call. The heavy black handset is made of "BAKELITE" a material which was replaced by plastic in the late 1950's.
Below is a picture of wonderful original internal workings of the phone.
