Actually a Western Electric Trimphone, made in Spain by Citesa. The Trimphone itself was introduced in 1965 and the Gondola was made from around 1970.

It is a compact model with an illuminated dial in the handset. The dial is actually quite intricate, as it is small and has a moving fingerstop.

My version has LED illumination. Earlier ones had an external power supply for incandescent dial lights built into it.

It came in a wide range of colours.
