The telephone has been stripped and cleaned to remove decades of dirt and grime, then re-wired and fitted with a light fitting within the earpiece of the handset holding a large vintage Edison style globe bulb with a gorgeous spiral filament producing a lovely warm glow. In addition the telephone has been fitted with small LED lights producing a mysterious red glow emitting from the mouthpiece and the drawer when opened.
These high quality vintage style LED light bulbs produce far less heat than the traditional incandescent bulbs as they use up to 90% less energy, and have up to 30,000 hours lifespan.
The telephone lamp also has an antique style metal flexible arm so that the handset can be repositioned.
In keeping with the retro style, the phone lamp also comes with a vintage style brown braided cable with an inline switch and a British 3amp plug.
This is an original retro phone is decades old so there may be some natural wear and tear which adds to the character of the phone.
All electrical work is new and has been carried out to a professional standard and has been PAT tested.
