    We have no idea what this was used for. First thoughts: fabric or yarn storage? Hardware store merchandise dispenser? Please help! I don't even know what keywords to begin a search! Maybe wrong category, but I gotta start somewhere! Thanks for your guesses! Third pic shows brass yardstick applied vertically. Sorry but my pics are sideways wonky

      I'm sure you are on the right track, especially since it is marked in fractions of yards on the side, as is even used today. It could be for a lot of things, rope, cloth, cord etc..

      Thank you blunderbuss2. They have recategorized the mystery. I hope to get more info!
