    looks like a signal call box or fire alarm signal system. Western Electric received a patent on a signal system on Feb 25, 1919.

    TTOMTUCKER.. That sure sounds like what it could be. Very nice quarter sawn oak box. Thank you for your input, I appreciate it a lot.

    All the best.. Patrick the finders keeper...
