Siemens 312 Table Telephone - Super Rare and VOIP Ready

£365.00 Coming Soon

This VOIP ready Siemens 312 telephone is fitted with our inDAT Pulse to Tone converter to give you tone dialling and, if you require, 'Star', 'Hash', 'Last Number Redial' and up to seven stored numbers. These options are switchable so the telephone can quickly be customised to your needs. This is the first Siemens 312 in the world with an inDAT fitted!

A super rare example, the much sought after 312 table telephone is Siemens version of the GPO 232 combined set. Unlike the GPO version, it has an integral bell set and a case with a more sharply defined profile. It is a real statement piece with a footprint of approximately 8" x 6". This example has its original 1942 No.10 enamel numeric dial'

These model, in any condition, are very hard to find, but this is a dark black case with an excellent shine . It has the usual super fine hairline to the right hand side of the case which we have stabilised and is quite normal with this model. It is caused by material shrinkage post moulding and is not impact damage. The final image shows the barely visible hairline.

The telephone has been fully restored and is in perfect working order. It is as nice internally as externally, is VIOP ready and had a braided line cord fitted with a standard 431a (BT style) plug. Interestingly, the base has the word 'Kiosk' lightly scratched into the surface of the metalwork - we have no idea what this is referring to, but is the sort of thing we really like!

The telephone comes complete with our own high quality Siemens reproduction paper furniture. The dial label can be customised with an area and telephone number of your choice.
