At the bottom there are few low quality photos, but seller gave some numbers from chips and badges.

Any idea what's it? It looks like terminal, these two ports looks like RS-232.

They look a little big to be RS-232, but that does indeed look like a terminal. Those could be hook ups for external drives too. It looks intresting.....

I'd say the openings are bigger than the DB25 connector is, to give room for the housing of the connector. For once in a while, medium extensive Google search on parts of the data yield no results, other than Cherry the keyboard company obviously seems involved in one way or another.

In any case, it looks big and heavy. After removing the plastic front on the CRT, it looks much bigger than on the "before" picture. Maybe also pulled back a bit to reveal some of the underlying motherboard.

I bet its a terminal of sorts, certinaly looks like one. Its lack of anything other than those two serial ports makes me think that it was a terminal, but why 2 ports?
