Rare Vintage PTT Ericsson Black Bakerlite Type 1951 Rotary Dial Telephone – With Mother In Laws Receiver/Listener (Second Ear Piece) – Matt Black Finish –  A Definate Collectors Piece – £185

Posted on


This is an original example of the stylish ‘1951’ model and was the result of a unique collaboration between PTT (the Dutch State Post & Telecoms dept), who designed the internal mechanism, and Ericsson who designed the beautiful exterior.  The initials PTT  stands for Post Telefoon en Telegraaf in Dutch. 

It’s beautiful Matt black finish adds to its charm and has the unique Mother In Laws Receiever/listener so a second person can listen in on the conversation.   

Another unusual design on this collectors piece is that the dial numbers are on the inside of the dial button itself, not inside each dial indent.  

Ready to plug into your current telephone and use straight away.

She is a snap at £185 but as always we are open to reasonable offers.

The phone is guaranteed for a full 12 months, all parts and labour free….. And then a nominal charge of around £10 plus parts after that:  A lifetime guarantee by any standards.  Hope you like her as much as we do.

Call in and see her at our Community Enterprise based at Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport, PR8 1EN. 

 Telephone enquiries are always welcome.  01704 535123.
