The Prince of Wales Hospice* is currently selling this vintage orange rotary dial telephone – very Mod! It would look fab in our kitchen but I’ve been banned from having any more orange items in the room!
A vintage dial phone is so much more enjoyable to use and hold. If I’m going to be on hold for 20 minutes waiting to talk to ‘customer services’, I’d much rather be on this than one of those ugly, flimsy ones that are being manufactured these days.
It’s in full working order and looks to be in really good condition – it was manufactured by Pye way back in 1974. The starting bid is only a tenner with £4 on top for delivery.
*The Prince of Wales Hospice provides specialist palliative care to those over the age of 18 with a progressive incurable illness. They provide our services free of charge to a catchment area of 170,000 people at a cost of £2 million per year but only about one-third of this is received from the NHS.
