    Large Iron

    About 2 feet long, metal was thin enough that I could bend it. Don't think it was part of a farm implement being so thin. Came from a cellar hole where I dug a few flat buttons, pewter fork, and late 1800's ring so it has some age.

    It looks like the right end has an intentional 90º bend ... My guess is a hanging bracket of some sort, perhaps for steam pipes.

    Its not a hinge. The right side has a 90 degree angle with a hole in it, and the hook end would not allow the piece to lay flat against a surface as a hinge would. Was thinking some kind of cooking pot hanger but not really sure.

    Trammel hook, - an adjustable piece of hardware for hanging a kettle over the fire to cook. See reply #6 in this thread...
