What is this? (part 2)

What is this? (part 2)

Here's a picture of the inside of the curious outlet I described in my previous post. Notable are the weight of the wiring, somewhere around 12 gauge, and that the wiring is in a box.

There are two of these outlets, one in the dining room and one in the front hallway.

Any new thoughts?

240 V outlets (for AC maybe)?

I have odd outlets in my 1912 dining room. Mine are outlets to plug in a butler call button. In that yours has 5 wires, maybe yours had various buttons depending on the need.
