We are a small family run business who buy, sell, repair, convert, renovate, & service antique British Telephones.
All our telephones have been carefully taken apart and each individual part professionally cleaned and restored. If required any worn or damaged telephone cords have been replaced with high quality UK sourced replicas as part of the renovation.
All these telephones are genuine British phones that we have correctly converted for modern use. They simply plug into a modern telephone socket, and will not interfere with other telephones in your house. For example the telephone dials and bells have been carefully serviced and adjusted using the original GPO instructions. For more details please see our Questions page.
We also sell Replica Retro Telephones on our sister website (Abdy Retro).
You can see actual photographs of all the telephones we have for sale online by selecting Telephones For Sale from our menu on the left. You can also see a selection of these antique telephones on display, available for examination and "for sale" at Elsecar Antiques Centre. The Antique centre is located at Elsecar near Barnsley, South Yorkshire. You can read more about us by looking at our Questions page.
These antique telephones were made in an age when the telephone was a thing of beauty and classic design. These telephones were regarded as a status symbol, and an item of elegant luxury. Many people believe they represent a golden age of elegant telephone design.
These icons of British design are becoming increasingly hard to find and consequently we believe that these telephones represent a sound investment for the future. However many of our customers simply buy these telephones to obtain that "finishing touch" to a beautiful home.
