Strange OIl Filter?? - Any Ideas

Edited

I assume this is aftermarket but I have never ran across one. 

A fellow sent me the following pictures asking for info. We are assuming it is some kind of oil filter. It came off the side of the pan in a 48 Crosley.  The pan pictures show how it was mounted, not sure what the 12 bolt steel reinforced mod was for.

Anyone seen one?
