    5A is the prefix for ground electrical lighting and heating equipment, other than domestic. I would say it was a plug of some description with the innards missing. Is there a hole through the side 2 or 3 mm in diameter?

    That's the baby! inside there would have been a plastic or Bakelite insert with 2 protruding brass pins. The hole through the side was for a securing screw to stop the insert falling out.
