Stylish 1980s desk phone/prestel terminal

This was clearly aimed at the executive market. Combining a telephone, dial up modem & a prestel terminal with a full qwerty keyboard. Prestel was a primitive predecessor of the world wide web allowing subscribers to access information pages composed of very blocky graphics such as news, weather, share prices etc & display them on the tiny 40 character wide screen. Having one of these on your desk would have been considered very cool back then.
