Yes, the old wire-and-spool system was dangerous because the wires were uninsulated and a mouse could take up the distance between the two with fire as a possibility. It has been 120 years, but it still can happen. You do not know the condition of the wires. Count on rewiring the home to modern standards, you will use the modern conveniences.
