Refugee from a Vintage Bike Show-Ford NOS?

Found at a vintage motorcycle swap meet, I think this is a late 1930’s rear license tag holder. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

 

Just a hint that might help. The part that would Mount you the car is a 90 degree return so the bracket could go under a horizontal surface, like perhaps a bumper or other frame member.

Don't think it's Ford although they and other makes used similar brackets, both front and rear.  Depending on year/make/model, they might be mounted on bumper, bumper arm, headlight bar, taillight stand, etc.  The holes at the ends of the horizontal arms are strange - seems the license mounting bolts could pull through unless they were backed with a washer.
