Ok, so what is it. I think its a boot pull. One of those things attached to the fall that you can jam your heel in to help pull your boot off.

I echo Geneman1's comment- it does not look likely to be iron, since it has verdigris on it. That's why I said it was bronze or brass. It could also be copper, but since I thought it was a hook for hanging a plant, I thought copper would be too soft. Are you really sure about this?

Drawer pull?

Are you certain it is iron? Looks more like brass, especially with the green oxidation in the crevices. Just sayin'.

It's an iron chameleon paperweight, the original trademark for Sherwin-William s paint.

Either a door handle or a flag for the mailbox

All previous guesses are pretty credible. I'm going to throw caution to the wind and say I think it's a trivet.
(I have to say that I do enjoy these Wednesday head scratchers)

Something in the picture to give size reference would be so helpful!
