Jim, the lower sheet metal part with suction cups is likely missing a heating spiral going between two electric connections. If so, then it was used on the windshield in front of the driver wintertime to melt the frost. They were common accessories here in Sweden in the 20's - 30's before cars were equipped with defrosters. You could drain the battery bad with one of these.

The upper part looks like a set of electrical switches to be fastened on the steering column. No idea what they were intended for - doesn't look like directional lights.

That's my guess on them the defroster really works
The piece with the four switches my first thought was a signal
Switch but the wooden buttons are numbered 1-4 so that it
Would have to be on the right side of the column.
I don't see a company name anywhere perhaps someone
Can come up with an answer for that one
