I AM OFFERING AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE
FRENCH HANGMAN PHONE

THIS MODEL IS BY PICART & LEBAS  THE RAREST AND MOST SOUGHT AFTER FRENCH PHONE MANUFACTURERS, MADE IN AROUND 1920/1922,  THE PHONE BODY IS IN A LOVELY MELLOW WOOD , THERE IS THE STANDARD RECEIVER AND AN ADDITION "MOTHER IN LAW" LISTENER. THE PHONE HAS AN INTERNAL BELL.

A lovely art deco telephone by Picart & Lebas of Paris.



FULLY WORKING .
Its interesting that most of the more exotic and rare phones on Ebay are not rewired to work, if you buy from a restoration specialist  like myself, you will sure to have a  phone that has been expertly rewired to work on a BT line.

IF YOU DONT HAVE A BT LINE I CAN SUPPLY A PULSE TO TONE CONVERTER SO YOU CAN USE ON LINES THAT DO NOT SUUPORT PULSE DIALING, BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THIS WILL DELAY ME SENDING OUT YOUR PHONE BY UP TO A WEEK, AS THE PHONE NEEDS A SPECIAL SET UP TO BE DONE, AND THESE  CONVERTERS WHICH CONSIST OF A SMALL BOX WHICH IS PLUGGED INTO YOUR BT WALL SOCKET, THEY COST £30 AND I WILL LIST ONE AS AND WHEN ONE IS REQUIRED.

I HAVE FULLY REFURBISHED THIS PHONE, WHICH MEANS THAT
I HAVE CLEANED IT, AND REWIRED IT , ALL THE WIRING IN THESE OLD FRENCH PHONES IS ALWAYS DECAYED AND POOR  OR NOT EVEN THERE, SO ITS BEEN FULLY REWIRED  SO ITS FULLY OPERATIONAL, WHICH IS A VERY COMPLICATED JOB
THE  NICKEL / BRASS AND PAINT HAVE BOTH BEEN LEFT, I PERSONALLY
FEEL THAT IT LOOKS MUCH BETTER THAT WAY. THE CERAMIC DIAL FACE IS IN GOOD CONDITION, AND THE DIAL HAS A NICE SMOOTH MOTION.

Its a large phone about 38.5cm tall and the base is 20x16cm
and really makes a statement, everyone will ask..."does it actually work",
yes it does. !!
I HAVE CLEANED , SERVICED AND VERY LIGHTLY LUBRICATED THE DIAL
AND PUT ON NEW ORIGINAL BROWN CLOTH COVERED HANDSET CABLE AND A MATCHING BROWN CLOTH COVERED WALL CABLE,....THE DATE OF THIS PHONE IS AROUND 1920/1922
 AND AT £395 OFFER REALLY GOOD VALUE, its the same sort of price as a  a GPO candlestick and the same era, if not earlier, and very much rarer.
IF YOU WANT MORE INFO I AM ONLY TOO PLEASED TO HELP

THE WHOLE PHONE HAS BE REFURBISHED IN MY WORKSHOP AND NOW LOOKS 
JUST GREAT, THE AGE SHOWS BEAUTIFULLY.

THIS IS A VERY RARE PHONE , A REAL COLLECTORS PIECE.
Its interesting that the supply of these lovely old 1920s hangman phones has
completely dried up, I have not bought a single one for months, 

I OFFER A LAY AWAY SYSTEM IF YOU CANT PAY ALL IN ONE GO, WHERE YOU SIMPLY
PAY A DEPOSIT (HOWEVER MUCH YOU WANT) AND THE BALANCE OVER 1 TO 3 MONTHS,
AFTER WHICH THE PHONE WILL BE SENT TO YOU.

THE PHONE MAKES AND RECEIVES CALL VERY WELL CONSIDERING ITS
VERY NEARLY 100 YEARS OLD, AND BEARING IN MIND ITS LACK OF TECHNOLOGY !

THE BUYER WILL BE ISSUED WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY AND 
OWNERSHIP, AND IT WILL BE MOST CAREFULLY PACKED WITH LOADS OF BUBBLE WRAP
IN A NICE STRONG BOX.
AT A BUY IT NOW PRICE OF JUST £375 THIS OFFERS EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE, IT
TAKES A LOT OF SKILLED WORK TO MAKE THESE PHONES OPERATIONAL.


PLEASE NOTE YOUR LINE SUPPLIER WILL NEED TO ACCEPT ROTARY DIALING, BUT IF NOT
IT WILL STILL BE OPERATIONAL EXCEPT THE DIALER WILL NOT DIAL OUT, IN ALL OTHER
TASKS IT WILL BE OPERATIONAL, ie IT WILL RING OUT AND YOU CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION.

BT IS THE BEST LINE SUPPLIER AS IT FULLY ACCEPTS ROTARY DIALING SO THEN ITS 
FULLY OPERATIONAL, AND YOU CAN DIAL OUT.
ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL I SHALL BE DELIGHTED TO HELP
