Looks like a bilaminate lug jobby ?
Looks foreign as the lamp holder is on the other side.
Really old bikes had the lamp boss on the left to illuminate the kerb....... before my time though lol

They were fine so long as you kept the brake shoes adjusted close to the rims.

I like a straight forward seller, “a mixy blob of components” is the perfect description
Amazing collection of complete bikes and frames up for auction here:
