I am voting for drawer pull. The decorative part would go on the outside of the drawer to hold it in place

I think it's the top of a hanging kerosene or oil lamp. The glass shade would be to the right of the decorative part.
My first thought exactly Fourman. :thumbsup:
But I'm thinking more along the lines of a late-Victorian or Eastlake-style type of hanger for either a gas or electric lamp.

The Eastlake movement was a nineteenth-century architectural and household design reform movement started by British architect and writer Charles Eastlake (1836–1906). The movement is generally considered part of the late Victorian period in terms of broad antique furniture designations.

Interesting .. Did they make such a thing that would be articulated in that fashion? I always thought that lamp hangers were designed for multi directional motion.

pepper i said intermediate steering shaft that is just a small section of the steering shaft were it goes through the fire wall were it has to change angles pepper I hope you do realize theres some times as many as 4 to 5 section to make up at steering shaft
Yes I fully realize that there are many sections of a steering assembly.
Though if one looks at the dimensions of the find 4" in length-now look at what the width of the shaft-1/4"-3/8".

I have no idea when the first intermediate steering shaft section was invented/installed in a vehicle.
Maybe since you are mechanically inclined you could provide an answer for that one.

But I will say this if any part of a steering shaft was only a 1/4" thick it wouldn't be very strong.
