After considering your suggestion and doing some research (googling) I suspect you're right, a device for making cubed steak etc. However the most primitive devices I could find are manually operated crank meat cubers, or mallets for whacking meat.

Yes its a meat tenderizer. All thought not all parts are there. Its missing the return leaf spring , which keeps the meat from sticking to the blades. I have seen them in alluminum , this one is steel and very heavy. No, I have not had it appraised. I'm not sure , but it may be from the 1800s. I'll try and find out more. The manufacturer is B&H and it has a patten # 6-14-21.

Ah yes, you can google "B&H meat tenderizer" and find similar devices. I found one hit with "6-14-21" but it produced no picture or other useful information. There's an eBay auction for a very similar appearing device.
