Maybe it's to help switch the water between the bath and the shower? It
seems sort of large for a faucet, but I can't rule that out either.
I'll pass along your theory, I don't know what it is but when the owner des
cribed this device he said something like a wire could be placed into the h
oles and then the other part could be forced past the holes to cut the wire
with the teeth. Not that it's a wire cutter but just something that came t
o mind when trying to figure it out.

Definitely not a wire cutter. Brass (too soft) wire cutter?
This answer is definitely correct.
Btw, I've been having trouble posting to my news server so I've been postin
g through Google, and they apparently don't allow cross posting so I've had
to post to each group individually. Hopefully we will work out a way get t
hings back to normal with all three groups posting to one thread.
I don't know if it's a mold or not but I don't have a better idea for those
holes. Someone told the owner that it was for making sails, so I asked The
Mariner Museum if they could identify this tool and they did not recognize it.
