GPO Retro specialise in the design and manufacture of classic British retro products. They are best known for their range of GPO Telephones.
The original GPO phones were produced by the General Post Office in the UK from the mid 19th Century, up to the late 20th Century, when the company was turned into a private corporation. During that period GPO released many phones including a number of phones that are regarded as design classics and iconic of their era. These vintage telephones and retro telephones are now highly sought after.
GPO Telephones are updated replicas of these original GPO phones. Using the highest quality materials, GPO have created a range of phones that have the look and feel of the original GPO phones but incorporate modern technology, enabling them to be used on current telephone lines.
A number of GPO telephone designs are available in a mixture of rotary dial and push button phones with push button best for those who prefer convenience and ease of use, while rotary dials are for those who want a truly nostalgic phone.
Available with either push button or rotary dialling, the GPO 746 telephone is perhaps the most instantly recognisable design. A classic retro telephone, it is now available as a wallphone.
At Hurn and Hurn we stock a comprehensive range of GPO Telephones. Ideal for homes and businesses wanting to add a vintage or retro touch to an interior and for those who love nostalgia, these classic and retro telephones also make ideal gifts.
