248 / 44 Planset Bakelite Office Telephone

£265.00 Sold Out

This is a very clean example of a 248 telephone mounted on a bellset No.44 and manufactured by GEC. It is commonly described as a Planset and was typically used in offices.

The bellset is complete, but was never originally fitted with a bell, so we have fitted a small modern ringer. This is fitted using the existing machine screws and does not require any modification of the original configuration. As can be seen from the photographs, the telephone is wired directly to the line and can be used as a conventional telephone.

All parts are original, with the exception of the handset and line cords, which are our own very high quality replacements. It has a drawer and is fitted with a No.10 enamel dial which has been fully serviced. The handset is dated GPO 164 C35 (1935).

A really lovely example.
