Looks like it hinges on one end. :roll:
Coming from your area it has to have something to do with backer or maybe peanuts. :lol:

OK Boss. My first contest. Not that I'm thinking of winning that hat, just that I think I've got a leg up. Which turns my thinking to your dog. Dog's eyes look like a Starwars puppy looking to eat a step stool or your mystery tool! I'd say it is a raddle. Wife has raddles for weaving. She strings threads through the slots to keep them from tangling. So for growers and such, I'd guess it might be used for laying out closely spaced strings for some crop I've never thought about. I'd guess tobacco as the more foreign crop for me, or cotton? As for which state in came from: The State of an Organized Mind vs. whatever kind of tangle I'd make.

Decorative piece that goes over doors and interior openings in old homes with high ceilings. Amish made, Pennsylvania.

Actually, I don't know what it is or it's purpose.

It looks a lot like the little ladder that have Elves climbing it to the top of a Christmas tree. Made in my Ohio basement in 1981.
