I've never seen nothing like it lol Usually you can guess on how it is used, but I'm coming up blank :shocked01: But I wouldn't scrap it.

Looks like a door handle to me.
Butt plate afixes to a door with 2 screws, handle to pull the door open.
Then again, could the handle on something you'd carry.

Interesting piece, that' much I'll say with certainty!

Much can be deduced by knowing where you found it.
Was there an old homestead there?

What are the measurements? Good thing to do with gaining help ID'ing a piece is to have a coin or even a ruler in the photo for comparison thumbsup01

Looks like it could be a letter holder, the kind that screws to a door or door jamb.
