GEC crank magneto telephone made in the 1950's by British Ericson.
Very good condition with undamaged cords and working magneto.
There are two vent holes - one on each side of the case in front of the handset. These mean that the phone is a tropical variant.
There was no dial on these early phones. So someone wanting to make a call had to start by alerting the operator at the exchange. This was done by turning the handle to ring a bell at the exchange. The operator would then connect the caller to their destination number via a switchboard.
