I have set this site up to display photographs on the Vintage Telephones that I collect, like the lovely old ivory 312 1950's Bakelite telephone that you can see photographed below.
I will build this site up with more photographs of my telephone collection as I get the chance. (Please call back and visit from time to time)
British Bakelite Telephones are probably the most sought after Telephones ever produced. These old Telephones were produced in the UK between 1931 and 1960. During this period several beautiful Bakelite Telephones were introduced into service in the UK.
In good condition and fully restored to their former glory these vintage telephones are in great demand by both telephone collectors and people who appreciate the classic nature of these old phones.
My main passion is for all types of telephone antiques produced in the UK. I collect old vintage telephones from the early 1900's mostly 1940's and 1950's. However the later Retro telephones from the 1970's such as the Model known as 746 Telephones are now also collectable.
A large proportion of these old phones were made for the GPO, hence they were known as GPO Telephones. However some of these vintage telephones were made for use by internal telephone companies such as ATM and used in offices, and Banks etc.
Old Telephones may appear to be a strange thing to collect, however more and more people are falling in love with these classic old style black Bakelite 1950's phones. Some buy them simply because the old Bakelite Phones are "Art Deco", others because these vintage phones are from a different era and are vastly different in many ways to modern phones. I believe these old telephones are worth collecting because they are truly classic icons of a memorable points in UK history.
I will put some photographs of my old telephone collection and telephone antiques on this page as soon as I can find the time.
For now I have included a number of links below that relate to Old British Telephones, so please have a look and see if you agree with me about the classic nature of these phones.
