    It looks like it might be some sort of plate holder, pattern holder, recipe holder or some such.

    It looks intertwined....can you kind of expand it somehow from the bottom....that might give a better idea of it's purpose. I'm keeping watch on this....someone here will know what it is....

    Is it more than one piece? Made of metal? Interesting...
    As soon as you pitch it the information will reveal itself, and it will be indispensable and irreplaceable.

    It's a picture frame. At one time there were two pieces of glass that you put the picture between. It sits on the slightly round part and the pieces of glass fits between the things that stick up.

    This site is so helpful. When we cleaned out my Grandparents house, barn, chicken coop, coal shed, smoke house etc. etc. we had many items we could not identify. Thankfully older people in the little town knew what they were. It was a history lesson.
