It's probably very nice and is probably worth something to somebody, but other than that I have no idea what it even is.

I doubt that it hasn't anything to do with WW2, nor anything to do with a Spitfire.

It would help if you posted pictures of any data stamped on the hub area, particularly the Rolls Royce information.

It's a shame that the small bench (made with the 4 blade tips remaining) has been lost in translation...

It looks like it was made from 2 separate 4 bladed propellers designed for a DH4 ("DEH 4" for "DeHavilland"). Since there are fewer than 8 blade pieces used for the rest of it, I'm guessing that it was fabricated from two separate propellers that had damaged tips in use.
