British 1940's Ivory Cream Antique #312 Series Bakelite Telephone
This is a rare ivory cream original 1940s British #300 series bakelite telephone. It's in excellent condition, has a 'call exchange' button and was used on shared-service lines (neighbours shared the same telephone line due to limited availability). The bakelite body has been highly polished and it has its original cream plaited cord. The dial insert 'Brighton 5340' is original and was on the phone when purchased. When plugged into a landline the internal bells have a beautiful ring.
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 land line.
Please see the attached pictures for the connections.
