Unknown mortar

I came across this mortar at a surplus store today and was wondering if anyone can identify it. I think it may be some sort of signal mortar

Is it some kind of Lyle Gun for line throwing as in Breeches Buoy and Replenishment at Sea?

Thanks Tim, Iím leaning towards it not being a genuine surplus item. Itís seems too crude to be milsurp. Maybe it was a prop for a movie or a fantasy item made to look like a mortar.

I cannot find anything similar on line

Looks to be like a WW1 trench mortar like a 91cm Lanz mortar used by the German Army or perhaps a film prop of such an item?
