Viscount 9501R telephone with additional circuit board and keypad, made by Standard Telephones and Cables for the British Post Office, 1982-1983.
The Viscount telephones were part of a range of home telephones introduced after the standardisation of telephone sockets in 1981. This standardisation ended the General Post Office monopoly on telephone designs, and gave consumers a wider choice. This telephone operated with digital exchanges rather than electric ones.
