Can Someone Identify This Phone?
« on: October 14, 2017, 11:12:11 PM »
This looks German, but it doesn't entirely resemble any model that I can find.

Thank You

And this time it is my turn to ask for help about the phone ID

The phone in the middle is an Elektrisk Bureau modell 1934 - Oslo version, The picture is from 1965, but what are those on each side of the that telephone?

The one in the corner is barely visible, so identifying it might be a challenge, but both of those phone appear to have German style handsets and German style finger wheels with hexagonal screw heads in the center.

Are there no clues on any of the components inside?

I just have this picture captured from a TV program. So far I have landed on soothing German as Larry suggested.  The curve on the handset and the hexagonal screw in the center of the finger wheels makes me believe in W48.

dsk,

at least the typewriter is easy, a German Erika model 10 from 1950/60's made in the GDR but was exported a lot. The phone might be a W48 or even a post war GDR W38 (I don't see the tranmitter part of the handset clearly), only thing strange is the number card holder. Never seen on a German phone before.

My thoughts re the phones in the photo...

The phone on the left is a Siemens W48.
The phone on the right, can't see much of it, but it looks similar to my phone (French), on this thread:

I guess you think about the metal box telephone in the middle, it is an Elektrisk bureau 1934, Oslo telephone, they were made with 2 dials for sharing when you had an office with to persons sitting face to face.  These were made from 1934 to 1953, only black, and the cradle was made in bakelite until 1940, from then in metal.
