Things airship related and the back story on operating the Airship Ventures Zeppelin “Eureka” in the USA.
I'll take a wild guess. Does this transfer power to both props associated with the aft engine?
I shall call it "George". Or something like an aft drive bearing plate.
My guess....Something to do with distribution of power from the aft engine.
I'd like to expand on my answer. I believe the bearing closest to the empty hole in the corner attaches to the engine. The shaft in the picture is associated with what I'd call the lateral propeller. The bearing furthest from the camera is associated with the propeller that can swivel from horizontal to downward vertical. The top plane of the device (as seen in the photo) faces the port side of the aircraft when installed. I'll also guess that the rectangular device located midway on the long side(between the table legs) is use to adjust, or maintain the tension of an internal toothed belt. Am I close?
Is it a paper weight.
