Your help requested!

This one comes from loyal reader Jo, a devoted member of the Greater Dover Historical Society.
What is this item?

It was found in a barn in the Dover area and donated to the society. It’s fairly small, but very heavy for its size.
Any ideas? Leave us a comment. I’m at a loss; someone earlier had suggested a harness of some sort and while I could see that (with the chain at the one end), it seems odd that you’d use something so heavy.
Help!

About Joan Concilio

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
