I could kick myself for not taking a picture of a speaker I saw this morning in an antique store. It's about 14" tall, wood cabinet, slight cathedral style, has a horseshoe coil magnet, cloth covered 2 conductor cord that has pins at the end. All I could find on it was a brass plate that says Pathe Loudspeaker. Looks to me like early 1930s. I'm not sure this belongs in this forum, but I suspect it was used with phonographs. My question is what type of impedance did these usually have?

They could be used for either radios or electric phonographs.

Speakers like that were typically made in the late 1920s and were 2000 - 3000 ohms impedance.
Good to match up with a UX-171A output tube
