Royal Navy Ship Telephone

Vintage Royal Navy ship telephone manufactured by SPT Co Ltd of Tollesbury, Essex. This is the Mark 15 phone, which appears to have been in service since the 1940s. This is marked 1986, but it is unclear if this is the year of manufacture or just a serial/contract number. Complete and in very good condition, and with a little work could be recommissioned for use. The handset is secured by means of a high tension spring and pegs - this was to ensure that the handset wouldn't drop off in rough seas. Wind the handle, and it makes a very satisfying whirring sound in the ear piece. Has been mounted on a board for ease of display. We have 2 of these in stock.

Measures: 32cm tall x 22cm wide x 22cm deep
