Fabric wire

Can anyone help identify what's left of this wire (top of shot).

It's fabric covered, seems to have 2 layers of fabric on each core, and maybe some sort of sheath (black) - but that could also be fabric tape of some sort.

The weird things that don't add up are:

1) The house is 1955 ish vintage and the most historic wiring I found when stripping out was some rubber T+E (or just "T"!)

2) The cores are wound spirally and go into separate ports on the historic Ashley JB.

I would date the cable attached to the bottom side as later than 80s-90s - black+red T+E in excellent condition.

I am wondering if this was a flex feed to a device bodged in rather than "proper fixed wiring" - maybe a bell transformer? (It is near the front door and there is some "speaker cable" aka bell wire nearby...

Any ideas would be very interesting

Ta Tim
