Examples of sold telephones
Sorry for the delay, we were away so only got to pick up the phone from the post office yesterday.
Thank you very much for the beautifully packed phone, the provision of a bag to put the polystyrene in was a nice touch, as were the After Eight mints!
Sue and I are delighted with this slice of our history, we have tested it out and it works perfectly. It's amazing how long it takes to pulse dial a number, one forgets how much slower the pace of life was when we were children.

I have just received the Telephone today and must write to let you know about your service
I am an online shopper - everything is ordered online
I would like you to know that I have never had anything delivered so well packed before, and the choccies are a big plus
From the follow up email after ordering, until the signing for delivery was so professional
Thank you so much and I will be recommending you to everyone I know
Im not sure if you are familiar with the book "The Red Telephone" about an Irish mother and her family in Dublin, its a brilliant read and she is my mother to the core
I know she will love this.
Received my Blue phone today and it's awesome.
Looks beautiful and very much perfect at 54 years old.
My phone is officially somewhat older than I am. Just love the romance of the past.
Everything seemed to have more value, better quality and such class, that nowadays has been lost somehow. Even being a gadit girl as I am, my nice phone is up there with the best.
Thank you so so much. A very much loved phone.
I will be back for another one.
Thank you for my 'old' Bakelite phone (received two days ago) beautifully restored and in perfect working order.
Just like all the other reviewers, the chocolates / duster / and plastic bag for the polystyrene were a lovely touch which you rarely get these days.
It's got pride of place in the living room and is a beautiful blast from the past!
What can I say, the phone is of excellent quality, just like new.
Packaging couldn't have been better, phone was totally secure. Bin bag for for the protective foam pieces and polish cloth were a professional personal touch as were the chocolates.
Have already recommended Antique GPO Phones.
The parcel arrived yesterday, just plugged the phone in and it and it all works perfectly - thanks, and nice touch with the mints.
It sits in pride of place on my desk and will be used every day. I might even think about another one at some point :)
My recent purchase of a telephone exceeded my expectations!your attention to detail and the quality of the telephone are fantastic.
I have had many comments and I have been asked for your website details,to anybody reading this review,please, take it from me these telephones are absolute top quality original items, and the service and communication from Simon is second to none.
I have missed calls because I love listening to it ring!.
I would not hesitate in recommending this website.
Many thanks - the phone has arrived today!
The box turned up ok and my first thought was 'That's a big box ... I don't remember my mum and dad's phone being that big ...', and then I opened it.
Shock! All that foam packing threatening to spread around my kitchen! and then I realised there was a fresh large plastic bag on the top. 'That's a new twist' I thought, and proceeded to put it to use eventually finding the phone hiding further buried in bubble wrap.
I kept going and eventually discovered the naked phone, dial even further protected by a new duster, as described and presented, in all its glory - handset individually wrapped.
Absolutely worth every moment of your efforts sir.
The phone has arrived shiny and unmarked, a quick test confirming it works as expected on my BT line. A real - and fully working - blast from the past with a delicate ring that says 'Excuse me please' instead of 'Oy!'
All I have to do now is keep it hidden from my wife so I can present it to her on Xmas day - or alternatively plug it in quietly and then ring the house from my mobile phone ;-)
Once again my thanks,
I didnít have time to look at the tracking number because my son is back from the smoke this weekend so we had many things to do this morning. However, the telephone arrived just after lunchtime today!
We have opened the box, emptied out most of the expanded polystyrene pieces, unwrapped the bubble wrap, and we are both delighted with the appearance of the phone and bell set. I tried them both out on our telephone line and the bell has that lovely old-telephone bell sound Ė i.e. it works fine. I also made and received a phone call using the telephone instrument, and Iím delighted to say that not only does it look good it works perfectly and its audio quality is top notch too.
Thanks very much for rushing to get this telephone to us. Iím very happy with it and Irene was also very pleased to receive it. Although now we need a display cabinet.
Thanks again and best regards,
This is just to say how delighted I am with my cream telephone which arrived a couple of weeks ago. It is perfect and sits on my hall table like it has always been there!
It is so nice to hear the old ring tone once again and I enjoy being able to dial numbers and not rely on instant recall.
Thank you for such excellent service and when friends comment on my "cool phone" I will indeed pass on your web address.
From a very satisfied customer
Just letting you know that the phone arrived safe and sound today. It is indeed a beauty! It is now taken up residence in the hall at the original phone position when the house was built in 1952 and is now plugged in. It works a treat!
The packaging was exemplary and the enclosed bin liner to contain the polystyrene chippings when unpacking was very thoughtful.
The box of chocolates pleased my wife but as for the duster, she was not so sure as she said it was another thing to dust (just joking).
Many thanks for an immaculate phone and the accompanying labels.
My son was totally surprised by our gift and loved it... he has it in our living room next to a sofa so he can use it in comfort.
Thanks again. We are very pleased with the vintage phone.
THE TELEPHONE IS FANTASTIC, "A THING OF BEAUTY AND A JOY FOREVER"
Thank you very much indeed, it looks VERY good and will retain its looks with its own little polishing cloth !
Chocs greatly appreciated and I love the gesture of the black plastic bag to dispose of all the polystyrene chips, truly a comprehensive service.
Happy New Year.
With many thanks
Phone received this morning in tip top condition. Classic phone, thanks for this and the after 8 mints ! Nice thought and touch.

The phone arrived today Wednesday. Thanks for arranging such a fast delivery service.
I must compliment you on the high standard of the phone's appearance, it looks brand new,
to think that it is actually over 65 years old is hard to believe and is testament to the skill and hard work that has gone into the restoration.
I am absolutely delighted with my new phone, it is working perfectly and has already become a great conversation piece ( no pun intended )
and fits beautifully into the Film Noir themed area in my hallway.
Thanks also for the box of chocolates.
