In the very early years telephones were made from materials such as timber, metal, Bakelite,
and plastic. Bakelite is quite strong and durable, however, it can be a challenge to repair.
1960s plastic phones can be wired for use. The 1950s saw beginning of an extensive colour range,
and eventually many different colour's became available.
Popular in France, pedestal phones were comprised of marble, painted and nickel plated metal,
and various fancy timbers.
We specialize in the repair and restoration of old telephones, and we will also re varnish, if necessary.
Plus we rewire with modern modular plugs, so they look as good as new.
We take great pride in restoring and preserving these telephones for the benefit of decorators,
