Topic tags/keywords: question

Apologies if this is not in the correct forum, but it is a completed project. My grandmother received it as a gift in 1991 and we have not been able to figure out what it is. It may be missing parts. The picture (attached) with the curved line on it denotes the curved cut the puck/wheel would follow when moved.

The wheel makes me think of a note or memo holder for some reason. Other than that, I got nothing, as they say.

It may be a ‘broom keeper’, (my word) the broom handle goes up from the bottom and the wheel holds it in by gravity. It is removed by pushing the handle up and pulling the handle out through the gap. (I’m guessing here.)

It looks like a flying duck to me… Joke.. Does your grand ma know who gave it to her? I am wondering if it is a sewing/spinning device. Anything in the back?

I’d agree with Dave Rutan.

I agree with Dave Rutan. Long handled-tool organizer/holder. Used as he describes.

That is a Viking fowl-hunting slingshot holder, usually made for wall mounting.
