Pulpit found in the basement of the Danforth Inn, in Portland Maine. I do not know when it was made but I can tell you it is roughly 80lbs. The adjustable top has a peg hole to stick a small wooden peg in to. The wood has been stained, I would have thought it to be pine if it didn't weigh so much!

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

80 pounds (+/- 15lbs)
History: 
Looks like it came from the: Maine Irish Heritage Center (formerly St. Dominic's Catholic Church). Again, my best guess based on location, age, and Celtic design... It would also explain why it isn't still inside of a church. https://www.facebook.com/pg/MaineIrishHeritageCenter/about/?ref=page_internal
