I understand that this is a hotel call box from about 1900. I am looking for any info or anyone who knows something about it in background or value, Thanks.

    Your hotel call box is known as a annuciator. It is more then likely manufactured by The Electric Goods Co. Based in Boston around 1904. EGM Co. produced most annuciators for hotels, large private homes. the value is around $75.00 to 150.00

    Thank you so much for the info. I am amazed at the familiarity with the piece. At the very top and behind the glass is inscribed ( as the room identifiers are) - Robert Scott Engineering and Construction Co. Phila - Thank you

    Robert Scott Engineering and Const. Co was the company who engineered and installed the aunuciator for the hotel.
