Viscount 9501R telephone, made by Standard Telephones and Cables for the British Post Office, British, 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.
