Nice phone, but the wood looks a little rough, and the dial is missing the fingerstop.

I agree, the cabinetry looks a little amateurish.

This model of office telephone was widely used in Europe. There were several French and German manufacturers that made this type / model.

The Mercedes dial was also produced (under license) in France and propably added to this phone later.
