This sound-powered bulk carrier wall telephone was made in England by S.P.T. International LTD. This vintage ship’s phone measures 10 inches tall not including any cords that hang down, the phone is only 8 inches wide. When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 7.5 inches and weighs 12 pounds.
The plate on the front of the phone states the following:
“SOUND POWERED TELEPHONE
TO CALL. SELECT STATION / OPERATE GEN
SWITCH TO ‘OFF’ AFTER USE.”
“1. WHEEL HOUSE
2. ENG. CONT. ROOM
3. STEERING GEAR
4. EM. GEN. ROOM
5. ENGINE ROOM”
Our vintage ship’s phone 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 office.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
