What could it be?



Here is a puzzler for the holidays. Cleaning the attic of the Gordon-Nash Library we found this “contraption,” which we donated to the New Hampton Historical Society (and the members were thrilled with the gift). Any guesses as to what it might be?
 
 Please send your answers to the NHHS at newhamptonhistory@gmail.com
