This is a great French analogue rotary telephone with a numbered and lettered dial in two-tone 70s khaki colours. Unusually, there is an extra receiver which sits behind the main body on it's own hook.
On the front of the phone is a list of emergency numbers in French and on the dial face are shortcuts to French services, including Télégraphie and Pompiers. With an extremely long cable, this old phone is perfect for adding a touch of retro charm to any modern office space and, apart from slight marks on the plastic surfaces which look to have been caused by an unsuitably harsh cleaner, the phone is in very good vintage condition. Please note, this product has NOT been tested and you may need to rewire it for your country's specifications.
Underneath, on the base of the body, there is a volume control and a section that reads 'Proprieté de l'Etat PTT'. Ten years after the P&T (postes et télégraphes) was first created in 1879, the government body in charge of communications in France took charge of the telephone and placed the service under the P&T. The administration then became PTT and kept this name until 1959 when it became "Postes et Télécommunications", although the acronym PTT was kept.
