The original GPO telephones 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 telephones 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 reproductions of these original GPO phones that have the look and feel of the originals but incorporate modern technology, enabling them to be used on current telephone lines for telephone banking, etc.
A mixture of rotary dial telephones and push button phones are available, with push button best for those who prefer convenience and ease of use, while a rotary dial phone is for for those who want a truly nostalgic experience.
Instantly recognisable and widely regarded as a design classic, the GPO 746 telephone is available as a desk phone or in a wall mounted version. Produced in a range of colours including black, red, blue and grey, these iconic phones ooze 1960s style and are ideal for those who love the retro look.
Those who prefer 1970s design should consider the GPO 1970s phone. A more angular design, it has a slightly bolder look.
Inspired by early 20th century phones, the GPO Duke telephone, GPO Carrington telephone and GPO200 phone are much more classic in style. Offering timeless looks, they are evocative of a bygone era and are ideal for someone looking for a more vintage style telephone.
Ideal for homes and businesses wanting to add a retro or vintage touch to an interior and for those who love nostalgia, GPO phones also make ideal gifts.
