Made by Phoenix Telephones of Hendon in 1920.
The type 16 is the GPO designation for the L M Ericsson skeleton telephone. This classic design, also known in America as The Eiffel Tower telephone, was introduced in the 1890's in Sweden.
This example is in generally very good condition, with its original paint. There is however a chip in the ebonite top platform. The price reflects this.
Credit/Debit Cards are the preferred method of payment. I no longer accept cheques.
If you wish to place an order, or have an enquiry, please read all below.
Please call me (Gavin Payne) by telephone if you wish to place an order for a telephone, spare parts, or have an enquiry. I can usually be reached 9.00am to 5.45pm any day, including weekends. Calls in the evening are not appreciated and could make me very grumpy. The number is 01245 400601.
I am in the shop most Saturday and Sunday mornings between 10.00 and 12.00. These are the only times I am in the shop for the sale of spare parts, conversions and repairs. Conversions and repairs can often be carried out while you wait.
If you have a telephone that you want to know more about, or
repaired or converted, please have it right next to you when you call.
Please also have a selection of small flat bladed screwdrivers to hand.
