It looks to me like this is some kind of tuyere with built-in ash dump and bullet grate. If I'm correct, this would go in the bottom of the firebowl with the unhandled side up. Clinker would form in a ring around the "jet" and would get broken up by jiggling the attached lever up and down. The clinker would then fall down into the ash dump, to be released by tripping the weighted lever.

Take a look at BP0138 Bullet Grate to get an idea of how a bullet grate works (although that example does not have the clinker breaker/ash dump yours does).

That's my best guess. Anyone else?
