† †What a neat old piece John. I would say not a repo, but the real deal.† Google antique rotating hearth broiler, and there is plenty to see. Here is a bit/backround on some of the hearth cooking tools ..
Edit to add: The age would be difficult. These and similar hearth revolving broilers were made up through the 1860's. Based on the Hex nut used on the bottom....that  would be my guess. Most early ones were blacksmith made (wrought iron), but casted like this, and the style to me indicates mid 1800's ( prox. 1850-60's)  The hex nut was invented earlier than most realize...1830's. That's my feel on this. There are many sites re: hearth ware(s), and books available as well.
