What is it? item 1635 (picture hanger)

Rob H., I found this image on the web: http://robinsonsantiques.com/picture-nails-hooks/picture-hooks-1-4.htm#hooks1 Sent email to the nice folks at Roninson's Antiques, here is their response:

They were just intended to keep both sides of the wire close together in the center as you put the loop over the center (top) hooks. This would (at least in theory) keep the frame always straight as it could not slide easily.
