    And can I use it for something?

    Laminated steel core:
    4 1/2"x 4 1/2"x 4 1/2"
    Label on one side says:

    On the other side, all the wires come out one side.
    They are grouped and labeled.
    |Orange wire labeled 0V
    |Brown 91V
    |Black 120V
    |White 105V
    (continuity between these 4)

    |Brown 16V
    |White 0V
    |Brown 16V
    (continuity between these 3)

    |White 8V
    |Red 0V
    |Black 8V

    Sure, you can use it for anything you need 8, 16, or 32V for.

    Usually, there is an AC input on the other side. Is that the 120 and 0 V

    120v mains primary, 2 secondaries 16-16 and 8-0-8v. Current as yet
    unknown, but a 4.5" cube must be what... 100w at a vague guess?

    Would run a power amp, a bench PSU, can be sued to boost filament bulb
    efficiency, and who knows what else.

    Could also be used as an audio output transformer if you weren't too
    worried about quality.

    Or even 24, 40 or 48v !! :~)

    Yes, althought you're then limited to the lowest current capacity of the
    windings, if you can see a small section of the winding you can guess as
    to the amps it can handle.

    jakdedert Guest would probably make a passable door stop. If not heavy enough;
    a paperweight!
