Found this item at a thrift store. Have no idea what it is. Hope someone can help identify it. That flat part measures about 7" X 10" and appears to be made of copper. It slides back and forth on the steel frame about 4". The brackets that hold the copper plate are riveted t0 the plate. The round steel slides through holes in the two brackets. The horseshoe shaped part seems to be designed to hook over something. There is a single hole at the bottom of the horseshoe. The top of the copper plate shows signs of wear as if something was set on there. This contraption appears quite old as the steel shows signs of blacksmithing. Any ideas would be appreciated.
