Hi, it looks like a base and spindle for some type of dust cleaning arm. These dust busters as some were called had a long arm with a brush or roller brush on it. They would track in front of the stylus to pick up any dust, dirt, ect that's in the grooves. I can't tell you what brand this base is from so just Google record dust cleaning arm or something like that and I'm sure a bunch of info will pop up. You might be able to match up that base to pictures that come up on the web. I hope this helps.
