It's unlikely that you could determine its usage simply from the picture. To me it looks as if it's more a post WW1 design, and it's actually made by combining two specially designed 2blade props to clamp together to make the 4 blade. You can see the recess in the rear blade to accomodate the front blade. If those are decals on the blade, they could be useful in tracking down the manufacturer.
