Really good phone,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GPO Duke Classic Vintage Telephone with push button dial (Electronics)
I thoroughly recommend this if you want a nice stylish retro phone as a feature in your home. In my opinion the phone is very well made and highly detailed for the price. The casing and handset are made of a classic heavy bakelite-type material with metal fittings. The handset has a nice heavy feel to it and the angled mouthpiece is a nice authentic touch. It has a definite retro look and feel to it and very much reminds me of the old GPO phones that were still on the go when I was a kid back in the 1950s. The phone also works really well. It has a nice clear ring tone and the sound transmission is excellent. I really like it and would recommend it if you want a classy-looking (in my opinion) ornamental phone that also works really well. My advice is to check prices before you buy. I found a considerable variation in price. At the time of writing (19 June 2013) the Amazon-listed 'Big Box Co' were offering the best price.
