This is one rare telephone

For those wondering what "one rare telephone" was when they find this topic in a few years only to discover that eBay deletes old listings and the link goes dead, here is a screen shot of the auction.

I was wondering when that was going to happen--both of us editing the same issue! ::)

I added worse picture than yours, a screenshot from my phone, but fixed the link for those who couldn't use the other one.

Those Dukane phones are Austrian, and I believe that they are about the same models as were used by the Austrian PTT (or whatever it was called).  I don't believe that I have seen a red one before.  They are almost all black.

I remember DuKane mostly for their filmstrip projectors (anybody remember those?), though they were (and still are) also big into paging systems.
Here is a more current model:

So it looks like they are still in the business.  I wonder if they had the red Austrian phones made specially for them?
