Moulded black Bakelite, which is easy to keep clean and does not become shabby through long usage, is the material used for the caseworks of the telephones illustrated in this page. Apertures are arranged in the base or back-plates to permit clear audibility of ring from the ringers which are fitted inside and the Bakelite micro-telephones are fitted with detachable receivers and "inset" transmitters.
This table telephone incorporates a form of micro-telephone rest which is not readily damaged by a fall or violent knock.
The whole of the interior apparatus is mounted on a frame and can be readily removed as a unit for inspection or repair, the baseplate being first removed by undoing one screw only.
Dimensions 5.5 x 9.25 x 7 inches
Weight 5.25 lb.
The internal components are fitted to a baseplate that is cranked in shape with a cord entry on the right hand side of the case. The dial blank is flush fitting and no dial can be fitted later.
