Something a little different…

A Belgian telephone. A customer came in and asked if I could rewire a telephone. I replied ‘yes, that’s fine’ then she pulled a somewhat bedraggled heavy Belgian telephone out of her bag.

It’s not something you see too often in the UK so I was not expecting that, however, she left it with me and I got to work.

Above – And here is the result of some careful polishing and rewiring/standardising for the UK phone network. It is all metal, apart from the handset, which is bakelite, so is a hefty little monster and it has a fold up brass handle to carry it around, very nice. All in all, quite a pretty little gadget.
