    This is a little box of lightbulbs originally intended to be 'indicator lights' (or 'dial lights', or whatever) for any number of various old/antique electrical devices of their era. I'd guess it was "new" sometime in the 1950's, maybe a little older.

      AnythingObscure, Lordy, those take me back.

      I used a lot of their 'descendants.' If you didn't have a real tool handy to remove the old bulb, and insert the new one, the unscrewed body of an ordinary ballpoint pen would usually serve.
