ID Brass thing in the floor

This apartment building was probably a larger single family home with servants.  That's the plate for a "butler button", which are very common in dining rooms of wealthier family homes.  Sometimes they're in the floor in the library or parlour too - so you don't have get up to push the button on the wall.
