I came across this at a swap meet today and initially thought it was one of the Zephyr mini tube radios. Closer inspection revealed it's a stand alone speaker. Looks to have a factory hole on the right side.
Is anyone familiar with one of these and know what they were used with? Thanks!

If the white wire is connected to the speaker lugs, and terminates with a 1/4 inch earphone type plug, it might have been used to give big speaker sound to a small tube or Transistor radio. There were a few others manufactured for that purpose as well.

The wire is stranded copper at the end.

I imagine the hole in the side of the cabinet is what it originally went through. You can use it as an extension speaker, or if you have an extra earphone cut it off and solder the wires to the speaker terminals, plug the other end into the earphone jack of a small radio, and get bigger sound.
