I agree with chrisstef. It’s like a Moxon but wouldn’t be used for joinery because the vise isn’t deep enough or wide enough. Plus, the top isn’t flush with the top of the vise and there are no dog holes.

Somebody made this for a very specific purpose and we’re not likely to ever know exactly what that purpose was. It was something they wanted elevated off the bench top but it wasn’t for joinery or planing. Either way, it looks like a quality vise and if nothing else, you made out like a bandit on just the hardware for $25!
