This original CHROME plated metal bodied wall mounted bell telephone was made in Antwerp, Belgium in the 1950's. 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.
