Telephone Of The Week – GPO 706 Model – A One Of A Kind Lace Effect Gold over Black – A Real Centre Piece – MakeItWorkShop – Dark and Glamorous

Posted on

A wonderfully customised GPO 706 Telephone dating back to 1968. 

The 706 was the earlier of the GPO’s ‘modern’ design phones, introduced into the UK in the late 1950’s. These phones are heavier than their later cousins (the 746) and of an extremely sturdy and reliable design and build.

This particular example has been professional re-styled with a magnificent lace effect finish in gold and black. She is one of a kind! Offers around £110… and remember, we are always open to resonable offers on the items we sell. If you can get into the shop to view this one, we are sure you will be impressed.

It’s certainly unusual and would make an ideal  gift or present for that special person in your life. It would look amazing in any room and is a real conversation piece. 

It’s fully functional, converted and working and is ready to plug into your current telephone line to use straight away.  

“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 Warranty by any standards. Hope you like her as much as we do! 😉
