Can anyone identify this vintage wooden crank box?

by Snance
The item is solid wood, standing aprx. 26" high x 16" wide, no exterior holes or outlets, side crank handle turns four wooden paddles inside with various size holes on the paddles. The bottom of the box is rounded. Item was given to me by a friend who collected antiques but they have no idea what this was. Would love to find out if anyone has any ideas or can identify? Thank you.
