One of a kind red AWA 162. Manufactured to be used as a display item at the AWA PMG Workshop in Melbourne. AWA issued only black and ivory phones as standard due to the issue of colour fade caused by the strong sunlight.
All parts of the phone are marked AWA and it is believed that AWA used Siemens to source the bell-set. The bell-set and phone are an absoluetely perfect colour match, even today.
Both phone and bell-set are manufactured from D material, which was used in the mid to late 1930s.
