Name That Gadget

Alright, folks, I need your help with this one.  When my husband and I moved into our first house about 18 years ago, we saw several antique items in the house that were left behind by the previous owner.  This little gadget is one of them.  Do you know what it is??  Watch the video below for a good look at it:

This gadget was hanging in the basement in the same area as the laundry stuff, but I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.  I have asked some friends and family about it, and nobody seems to have a clue what it is or what it’d be used for.  The hanger is too small to hold a shirt, and I can’t guess what could be hung from the hooks.  The whole thing sways and swivels, so whatever is hung from the hooks would have to be equal weight for it to hang properly.  I’m guessing?

If you know what this is, or have a good guess, please leave a comment below or send me an email.  I’d love to find out!  Thanks for your help!

    I’d guess a stocking hanger, for ladies’ stockings.

      Well, I had Mom (94) watch the video and she goes clear back to wash boards and wringer washers that you had to turn by hand. Her comment was, ” I have no idea what is, I’ve never seen anything like that.”
      I thought she might know but nope. sorry
