Wild & Wolf 746 1960's Corded Telephone, French Blue

Product information

The 746 is classic British retro telephone and '60s style icon. Based on the original post office model produced in 1967, Wild and Wolf have brought it up to date in a range of striking colours, featuring the bold curves of the original design.

For modern convenience, the dial has been replaced by buttons without detracting from the outer bezel design. The phone simply plugs into a standard phone socket and also features a re-dial button. A fabulous British accessory for any home.

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good colour nice and bright A great Colorado phone although am disappointed that the wire is a hideous shade of grey,not even contrasting with the mustard yellow of the actual phone .the receiver feels a bit light certainly when compared with the real 60s and 70s phones. However it does the job that it was purchased for. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly as expected This is a great phone. It looks lovely, the colour is great and it works fine. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking, easy to use phone Great looking phone, goes with our decor. Old fashioned ring that is clearly heard all,over the houses.touch dial facility means it is up to date and quick to use.great service had phone delivered to our local Waitrose. It was there the day after ordering. 05 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looked good, right back to the 60's Worked well for about 6 weeks. Not overused. Suddenly the ring tone did not work although the line connected. Sadly had to return item as it was not usable. 07 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It This is a well made product, good colour and has a truly retro feel. It comes with the phone adaptor and I've had no problems with reception when using. Excellent service from click and collect too. Happy to recommend this product. 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It really sounds like a telephone! We were looking for a telephone for our new home office and wanted something rather stylish. We both saw this online and agreed immediately that it was perfect! We have not been disappointed. We have it in bright red and it is not only a good-looking product but is also great to use. Love it! 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Similar fault to many other reviews This is such a sweet phone - just a shame it doesn't do a good job. Like others on here, it just goes dead when you are using it. The caller can hear us but we cannot hear them. I assumed it was a wiring fault with our phone but have now realised it is probably something more as so many seem to suffer from the same fault. Now we are having to go 30 miles to return it (if I can find the receipt) with very little confidence that the next one will be any better. Hope John Lewis actually read these reviews and do something about it 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice looking phone but I am having the same problems described in other reviews. A terrible buzzing starts 5 minutes or so into a call and it is impossible to hear the other person. Sadly the phone needs to be returned. 15 March 2015
