It was probably made by KTAS in Kopenhagen, Denmark.  However, many of these were replicated later, even in Japan, and sold for the American market, which may be recognized by the American number plate on the dial, with the Bell System letter arrangement.

I wouldn't buy it without close examination.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for one of these phones? I just bought one with a fault and I'm having real trouble finding any informatuon online.
Call me on C*net 0246 81 290 from the UK
or (+44) 246 81 290 from the rest of the world.

For telephone videos search Andys Shed on Youtube.

This is the D08 diagram posted in TCI library. Not sure that it will help:
