Since the development of cell phones, the red British telephone booth has become a relic. According to Jeffrey Stinson of USA Today, the Office of Communications in Britain reports there are 70 million mobile phones serving their population of 60 million. With this trend, the Royal British telephone booths have become collectors items. With this in mind, we have brought 2 of these unique and rare phone booths to our store.

These cast iron booths include a mold of the British crown located at the top of all 4 sides. If you are looking for a unique item to put in your business, home or yard this will definitely draw attention from those passing by. Their bright red exterior is a real eye catcher. These original booths date back to the 1940’s and 50’s and weigh 2,000 pounds each. They are definitely built to last.

I have found sources from countries all over the world who share the same interest in history and military collectibles. We have developed an international collection of military antiques that we are glad to share with you.

We have everything from inert shells and ammunition to a large assortment of tanker, flight, and firefighting helmets. Countries of origin where we have gathered this militaria include Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Poland, China, Israel, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy and more.
