The design is distinctive and pleasing and incorporates a form of cradle or micro-telephone rest which is not readily damaged.
In the telephone base there is a sliding tray which will accommodate a writing pad intended for ready reference and will be useful and handy for a directory of the more frequently called numbers, or other memoranda. Pads are very easily inserted and are included only when ordered.
The interior pieces of apparatus including a magneto bell are mounted on a frame which can be removed as a unit so that each instrument is self-contained.
Terminal blocks have raised ribs to minimise surface leakage.
The reception and transmission efficiencies of the Bakelite micro-telephone with inset transmitter and detachable receiver are vastly superior to the solid-back type, and the anti-side-tone induction coil in the circuit reduces the reproduction of extraneous noises and side-tone to a minimum.
There is provision for the fitting internally of a radio interference suppression unit, which can be supplied when required.
This instrument is normally produced in black, but if specially ordered it can be supplied in Chinese red, ivory or jade green.
Instruments can also be obtained without the sliding tray fitment.
