This Authentic Sound Powered Telephone – Type P761 measures 10.5 inches tall not including any cords that hang down (24 inches with cords), the phone’s body is only 9 inches wide. When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 8 inches and weighs just about 12.5 pounds.
Sound Powered Telephones operate by converting sound waves into the mouthpiece on the right of the phone into energy to power the phone. SPTs are still widely used on vessels worldwide.
Our Authentic Sound Powered Telephone – Type P761 is in as-found condition with no verification of the working condition. It has not been restored at all! It is a great historical piece and it displays very well! Just the thing for your nautical themed décor or garage.
