What we really need is a recording of "Never Gonna Give You Up" played with one of these things. First, it's a real rickroll. Second, it would do damage to the recording, which can only be a good thing :-)

I'm gonna guess some type of early whisk?

The owners tried it as a whisk and said it was not very effective at that, but if I had to pick one of the guesses I would still say whisk, just not a very well designed one. Other suggestions for it include: pot scraper, rug beater, carpet cleaner, and pipe scraper. Looks like it's still a mystery for now.

the top make a sort of jingling noise, like a ring of keys or some kind of tambourine?
What's the loose stuff at the bottom? Is it like rags, or a cloth, or hide, or something that could be swung around like some kind of stylized broom?
I'm thinking some kind of fetish, like a magickal stick used by a medicine man or some kind of tribal guru, used in healing rituals - the jangling rings scare away the evil spirits, and the loose stuff at the bottom sweeps them out of the patient's body.
But I'm nuts, so never mind. ;-D

    Perhaps something to go into the mouth of a hooked fish for extracting the hook?

Yes, it was marked 'early powder keg'.

There's something funny about the hoops, which is why I put a question mark on it. They don't look like regular wrought-iron hoops -- maybe wire or something -- but I can't make it out from the photo. Powder kegs usually did not have wrought-iron hoops because of the sparking hazard.

The hoops are made of wire, probably a good idea to avoid sparking as much as possible but I did see a powder keg on the web with iron hoops.

Yeah, I recall that there were some, which I saw in a museum when I was a kid. There were some that used copper hoops but that must have been expensive in those days.

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2221)    Given the size the set of holes on the top, and the lever along     the side, I suspect that this is some kind of novelty food     grater, perhaps for nutmeg given the size.
2222)    Some kind of small barrel -- perhaps for ale or something     similar?
2223)    3" inside diameter -- inside of *what*? Inside the small     center hole, inside the three arcs between the spokes, or inside     the circle suggested by the three legs?
    It sort of looks like a device to suspend a container over a     flame. But if the 3" is inside the legs, then it might be     something to be screwed down to a wooden rail or table to hold a     candle in a glass.
2224)    Perhaps for use in a tool booth, with the buttons representing     different entry ramps to the tollway, and the phone for     communicating with the central office and the police in case of     problems.
2225)    Well ... the eyes to the left and right with the hook suggest     something which is wrong -- based on the orientation of the     ratchet teeth. It is designed to push the ends apart, not to     pull them together.
2226)    A self-defense weapon -- held inside a fist, with the points     serving as attack points, and the rest of it increasing the     mass of the fist to give a more powerful blow -- with the     grooves intended to keep it from slipping out of the hand in the     middle of a fight.
    Now -- to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

Turned upside down and driven into into the ground, it looks like it would do a good job of holding a rope or cable. There's even a good place to hold a knot and enough room to tie one. I'm not convinced...

The last one, 3" i.d. of the three legs.

It's for holding something but not for a candle.

Correct
