Hello  All,

I have seen an interesting item that I believe is a  microphone.  It was in 
a nice little 'presentation' box and is in pretty  good shape as far as I 
can tell.  My web search has returned absolutely  nothing on this, but maybe 
someone out there can provide some  details/history.

Here are the particulars:

1.  Hexagonal  shape, about 3" - 4" across (did not measure).
2.  Outer housing seems  to be made of marble.  Nice and heavy.
3.  Has a metal  loop/hook/bracket on right and left sides.  Used for 
suspending in a  frame?
4.  Two connector posts on the back face with bakelite  knobs.
5.  Front face is metal, painted black, with a plated screen  centered on 
the face.
6.  Printing across the top:  T.K.S. LYRIC  HM-400L
7.  Printing across the bottom:  HODEN CO.

Any  ideas, leads, information?

Thanks in advance for all of your  help.

Best Regards,
