Two examples of what? The descriptive name will do, the actual name would be a bonus.

Just look like some normal old synthesize radio tuner or something to me.

But, because even you can´t think we would be that dimwitted, (no need to comment on this, thank you
) I have absolutely no idea ( I said NO need to comment, THANK YOU!!
)


Some army signal radio receiver?

A Synthesizer for any electronic musical instrument.
Not a synthesizer, but you've said the magical words "electronic musical instrument".




Nice wooden boxes, so old or very expensive. Controls for a theremin?
Forerunner of the Moog? I.E. A vco or possibly a white noise generator.

They are Volkstrautonium, the simplified home version of the trautonium produced by Telefunken between 1933 and 1935. The most famous use of the trautonium was to produce the bird noises in Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", but there were also musical pieces specifically composed for the instrument.
