The logo would simply be Aero, Location would be Corry, Pennsylvania.

Since it has a throttle, mixture and prop lever, it's going to be a single engine aircraft with a variable pitch propeller. With no military data plate present or other markings to indicate military usage, I'm thinking this will have a civilian application post-WWIIish, but that's a guess.

You right about single engine. I did a lot of research and come out that this throttle was mounted on different military aircrafts T-6, P40, P47. This throttle should be one of the first model. A one point they add a clutch lever. Probably this one was on T-6 aircrafts used by Italian Air Force. I found different pictures of other similar throttles.

I add the results of my research for other users. In the pictures below two different P-40 aircrafts throttles with friction knob and without. Clearly are two different versions of P-40.

Here below a brass plate for P-40 throttles. Look the project fiche on the back of the plate. This goods are sold for a series of aircrafts.
