    its a cobblers tool to hold shoes to be repaired, a shoe last.

    You don't see these everyday anymore. People throw their shoes away now rather than repairing them.

    We still have a shoe repair shop in town . He is old but I remember going to him as a teenager to have taps put on my shoes( everyone had them then till the schools banned them :-) And watching him work on shoes through the window when we had nothing to do . Nice old piece !

    Not much value in terms of $. Clean it up and use some stove black on it and you have a display item.
