    It was from a rural property near Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.
    I have a pair of them. They are very heavy, over 5Kg each. I think that they were mounted on a flat surface, as the holes for screws are not very big, just enough to stop it moving around. It looks like it could hold two boards at inclined angles. The wheel gives an idea of the scale.
