This rare enamelled black metal-bodied antique telephone was made by "bell telephones" in Antwerp, Belgium in the 1940s. On both sides of the body it has "Bell Telephones Antwerp" inscribed in gold. It also has a carrying handle. It is fitted with a beautiful original-looking plaited cord which blends beautifully with the body. This telephone is in superb condition for its age and is ready to use on a normal telephone line worldwide. The phone has a wonderful old ring and is heavy around 2 kg. The heavy black handset is made of "bakelite" a material which was replaced by plastic in the late 1950's. All our antique telephones are fully stripped down, polished and 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 and all international customers (usa, europe, asia etc) will be provided with a rj11 adapter, so the customer can use the phone on any fixed telephone line. Please see the attached pictures for the connections.
