    Is it glass or plastic?

    Looks similar to a small vintage Crouse Hinds explosion proof lamp lens. Would be common in an industrial area, not so much in a rural setting.

    Ditto, and does it have any letters/numbers on it? maybe another photo looking inside. Is it complete or anything broken off?

    I thought car because in the 60's someone put a line of 5 or 6 cars from the 40's or 50's as a breakwater on the beach.
