If you are looking for unique retro gift ideas for your mum or a quirky present for a couple then this vintage telephone lamp is the perfect piece to compliment your retro / vintage home decor. The perfect gift for a lover of all things quirky, imagine the look of delight and surprise when they unwrap such a retro piece of history and realise that it’s actually a lamp that can be angled to use as accent lighting or as a reading lamp.
We have them available in different colours ( see the retro telephone section of our shop- link below) This one is is a beautiful light cream colour almost ivory white.
These are from our 'Call me old fashioned' Range and made by our very own crazy designer Professor Pat Pending ( Nick my hubby and other half of Ladybird Lane)
The technical bit -
These have been created from authentic Vintage GPO rotary dial telephones which were no longer working or viable to convert to digital.
A flexible chrome goose neck fitting has been secured between the base and the handset to enable a 12V power supply to the handset, complete with led capsule bulb.
The lamp is switched on with a low voltage inline switch permanently wired within the telephones case
These phones have had all the original internal wiring removed, so no matter how hard you try you can't connect to a landline but the dial does work and your children will be amazed at how long it takes to dial a number on one.
Your lamp will come complete with the centre circle printed 'Call Me Old Fashioned' and also with its own 12V power supply making it ready to plug in and switch on
Your lamp will come complete with its own 12V power supply with a 1m cable. For an additional cost we can supply an extension cable of either 1m or 3m giving more flexibility. Please add a note at checkout
We can supply UK, EU, US and EU power supplies
