Still would have no idea how large the object is. Could be two cm or two meters in diameter. The more I look, though. It appears to be a bearing that mounted on a beam or table more than something that would spin.

Like the overhead fitting and axle-end for an overhead drive system.

Looking at the head of the screw / bolt in the center may give you some information on how old it is, or could be. Phillips head would indicate not very old (online search should tell you when they were introduced), and a flat-head screw could indicate that it is slightly older, though it could also be more recent and they just opted for a flathead over a phillips.

Not sure exactly what that is though. Curious...

The first word is PATENTED. I guessing the other is a date, but I can't read any of it.

Looks to me like it's designed to be mounted on ..something, and a spindle
of some sort turned in the center.

It could well be a part from a farming machine.

Tried to get the lettering to stand out better..
