AUTOMATIC & CB
Table version of the ETELUX telephone. The phone could be ordered with an internal lamp which would illuminate the dial. The lamp was powered by a small power supply.
Auto or CB.
Introduced in 1962.
The model N1981 has a button which can be locking or non-locking (type would have had to be specified at time of ordering).
Primarily for export and PAX use Ericsson developed a compact telephone called the Etelux. It had the standard handset lying 'vertically' across the dial, which could be illuminated (thus making it a luxury phone!). The base had rubber matting to discourage the phone from slipping when dialling (something sadly missing on the Trimphone) and the handset cord was sheathed in clear plastic (which yellows rather badly with age).
