    With the rounded metal of the frame, I can't really see how the glass/perspex could be held in place.
    I think the whole item was round in circumference, maybe something to do with the fishing industry ..

    Gary's right, it's the frame of an eel or crayfish trap. There are ones the same for lobster, but they tend to be a bit bigger.

    The cartridge looks more like a 20mm. The other item looks like the steel reinforcement from an old council litter bin, certainly not a canopy.
