Welcome to the Online Shop. All of the GPO telephones I sell are original models that are restored back to their original New condition as much as possible-as they stand. Parts are only replaced if the original parts are beyond repair, this is to retain their collectable value.

Before you purchase any vintage dial telephone please check with your service provider that they support pulse dialling - if they do not you may not be able to make any out going calls unless the telephone is adapted at a cost, in any case the vintage telephone should have no problems accepting incoming calls.
