British Red Telephone Box - Model K6A

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a late 50's early 60's version of Sir Giles Scott's beloved kiosk, first introduced in the 1920's.
The K6 models, a foot shorter than their predecessors, were designed to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V.

This is a genuine vintage British red telephone booth, NOT a replica.

This would make a novel outdoor shower or a handsome adornment to your property. These can be converted into aquariums, bars, refrigerators, bookcases, or even a telephone booth!

There are several specialist companies who will do the conversion for you and supply any parts you need.

Transporting this first requires lifting it onto a truck using a sling and mechanical arm or crane. Cost of removal and transport is the responsibility of the buyer. BG is happy to assist with logistics. Pickup location is Hingham, MA 02043.
