Can You Identify This Mystery Kitchen Tool?

Q: I am writing with hopes you might help me identify a kitchen tool. The back story is my parents purchased a home in Middletown, Rhode Island, that had been the home of the personal chef of the Vanderbilt family at their summer mansion in Newport, RI.

It was an estate sale and much was left in the home including some kitchen equipment. Attached is a picture of what appears to be a very large, and heavy, rolling pin. It has a handle on only one end. Any ideas of its name and purpose would be much appreciated.
