The first shot shows a heavy installation
fixed to the top two courses of brickwork. The chimney is quite
old and bricks will be soft. Despite the (probably superficial)
new pointing the mortar might be none too good. The top inch or
so of the bracket is resting on the haunching that holds the chimney
pot in place. The installer could have fixed to the next two courses
just as easily. You might notice a strange black thing on the mast.
The second shot shows the contents of this grisly parcel: an indoor
splitter, nicely corroded!
