Amazing Bakelite Telephone 1940s GPO/P&T Fully Working!

A very old and rare vintage Bakelite Telephone working perfect, dialling out to make calls and ringing with a nostalgic loud vintage bring bring sound.
Dating from the 1940s and made by Plessey for the GPO this phone is a real survivor.
This telephone has the unique “BELL ON and BELL OFF” feature which also works perfectly as it should, silencing the bell when the button is pressed down, useful if you have young children sleeping or do not wish to be disturbed.
I have only ever seen one other of this type of telephone and it sold before I could get to it.
A rare beast indeed!
Speaking and listening works fine, not like the modern digital phones of today but this is a great working telephone for everyday use, a real survivor.
Original plaited handset wire, nice shine all around and with a chrome dial and a label for DEAN. Sitting on four rubber feet so as not to spoil ones polished furniture. The plug in line wire extends to 3 metres.
This phone also has the rare pull out tray (cheese drawer) for keeping ones important phone numbers.
No damage anywhere a beautiful Bakelite telephone.
Wired by an Eir Engineer for use in the North and South, just plug in and away you go. Fully working.
A heavy item. Great condition and a real display and talking piece in any room. Dating from the 1940s.
