I watched an old Indonesian movie from 1954, there is a phone in pyramid shape, but strangely the base is not square.
It has no dial since we still needed to contact the operator to call someone in the 50's here

Does anyone know what phone is this?

Yes, it's a North Electric Galion - (manual version with dial blank)

North Electric Galion, but with a german handset - Siemens Modell 36/ W38 style, if I am correct. Strange.

It seems to be a bad habit of those North Galions to appear unexpectedly with wrong dials, handsets, what else?

Anyone noticed the phone in the Vicks commercial?

AT first I thought this was just a prop made from a WE 500 but then upon closer inspection the hookswitch plungers appear to be chrome and the hookswich hangers (where the handset rests)  are not squared more like semi hexagonal. No "handle" to carry it like a 500.
