We used to make things in this country. #212: Sharpe, Toronto

Photographed yesterday at a local garage sale.  The meter attaches to two anodized aluminum discs, held apart by two insulators.  No one at the sale could hazard a guess as to the purpose of this device.  The case looks like Bakelite and the test leads were cloth covered, so that gives some indication as to its age.  I can find absolutely nothing online about the Sharpe company.  Mysteries abound!
