It looks like one of the early French style ringer boxes, with the side clips holding the cover box down, and fancy routed edges.
Here’s a pic of one of mine. I can’t read the manf.s name on mine.

Maybe someone else will recognize this one.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

I say it is French too. If it isn't marked then finding the maker will be difficult as there were a few making ringers like that.

FAB,
Thanks for clarifying that for me. I’ll make a note of it.
