Default Shado Desk Phones

Hi. Would anyone have any information on the desk phones that adorned Strakers desk in both his offices? I have done some screen grabs, but not sure of their dimensions.
Hope someone can help. Thanks

I suspect these were made by the props department out of Balsa (if you mean the bright coloured ones at least)

If you can get hold of a cheap second hand Western Electric 'G' handset, you could base the dimensions on those perhaps? Or some googling on head ergonomics might help maybe.

I thought they were trimphones with the lead removed.
EDIT: Obviously not. Perhaps some other found item.

Thanks Howard. Certainly makes for interesting discussion. I'm definitely going to make one and then cast them.
