    From a colonial site

    Whatever it is, it's no later than 1830. The homesite was abandoned around that time

    Seems short for an andiron. Can you try and see if the round part is a hinge? Could be broken fireplace tongs.

    Best wishes nice find!

    It does appear to be hinged. The round middle part would be the hinge and the 2 half circle arms look like they should move. Much like this. I think you nailed it!

    Nice old find. At first I thought maybe some sort of a handle for a throttle cable driven mechanism. Interesting
