That is certainly an unusual design for a mortar. Its flat base & horizontal priming dish point to it as being a piece that was designed to be fired vertically. I suspect that it is actually a large thundermug, fitted with carrying handles so it can be carried by two people, which a previous owner has interpreted as trunnions.
