So What​ is it?

This photo states it is  a phone photo, but there is a small phone at the top of the bigger item. So did this item have anything to do with  phones? One of those machines  workers used to plug the cords into to  send the signal over the correct phone lines when we had the dial phone or prior? Anyone have an idea? Interesting item and pretty red color. If you know please let the rest of us in on it.
