I found this among some stored things, and I am wondering if it is a piece from an old, wooden box camera. My father had one long ago. I thought it might be an item used in loom weaving, but have asked a loom weaver and she is not familiar with anything like it.

Many thanks for reading this post.

    Kerry, many thanks for your reply and identification! Decades ago in the 1960s, my mother had a stereoscope viewer. I don't know what happened to it, however this part of it somehow stayed behind.
