Original Bakelite Telephones

Pristine condition with a pitch perfect ring.

Unicorn Restorations can offer original Bakelite telephones of superb quality. Stylish and elegant they are from the age of considered conversation, a stand-out feature for your home or as a wonderful gift.

We have a limited amount of these pieces that have never been assembled before. The casings were taken from the GPO by the Government during WW2 but never used.

This means they are in peak condition.
