This auction is for

a

GPO

TYPE 332

(TROPICAL)

BLACK BAKELITE TELEPHONE

 

I don't know a great deal about these instruments and only have a passing interest (having acquired some telephone equipment in part-exchange for railwayana many years ago).  

This auction is for a Type 332 instrument that seems to be in very good condition and is complete with what I believe is its original  handset (if it isn't, I'm sure someone will set me right on this pretty quickly).

The major faults are:  the base securing screws have been a bit butchered and the rubber feet are very worn;  the handset cable appears to have been replaced as the rubber sealing grommet doesn't properly fit the aperture in the case.  The instrument appears to have been rewired (rather clumsily) with a modern plug. Don't know if the complete unit works, but see no reason why it shouldn't.  The dial revolves freely and returns to its stop correctly.

The base is marked 'Telephone No. 332  Tropical  4509D  TFG'  which I'm sure means a lot to those who know about these things.  Does 4509 mean it was manufactured in September 1945?

 

There is a label attached to the back indicating that it was installed (somewhere)  by E. Shipton &Co of Northwood.

 

Please have a good look at the high resolution photographs as I'm sure they'll tell you more about this telephone than I can.

SHIPPING COSTS:  I use APC Couriers to ship all my Ebay sales;  they offer a fast, reliable 24-hour overnight service which is fully tracked.

Please read this (it is important!): There is a supplemental charge for shipping to the Highland & Islands and to Northern Ireland, so please contact me first if you are buying from these locations
