Default Early Ericsson wall phone ID and advice please

OK so against my better judgement I bought at auction today an early Ericsson wall phone probably Swedish maybe Danish for the princely sum of 35 quid. I've eyed these up before as wall candy but I'd quite like to do something with it. Phones aren't really my thing although I do have a very nice French thomson Houston candlestick as our house phone. So two questions can anyone tell me the correct model and can this thing be connected as an extension phone? If not I have a couple of old type F field telephones so could possibly set it up as an internal phone with those.

That looks like a real bargain! You often see boring old 1970s phones for similar prices!

Here’s a GEC one from a 1920s(?) Bennett College book.

Mid C20th? I don’t think so!

What I se is a pre 1930 in bad shape, worth £40?? It may be more info in the ad that will change that. It is designed to work well together with the F phones, slightly more difficult to modify to a work on a CB line, but possible.
Congratulations with a new project

Better picture here. Condition looks better than "bad shape" to me

Yes, that is a better picture, some woodwork and it should be OK. Have not worked much with Ericsson wooden phones, but the Norwegian "sister" Elektrisk Bureau did pretty much make the equal phones, with a little difference to keep it different Have worked with some of those.

I picked it up yesterday it's actually in quite good condition and all there except the decals and the horn all of which are available which makes a change.
