It's a plate holder. The curved part could hook on plate to take it out of your oven, Hallmarked.

Book holder. Music, hymnal.

It looks a mirror handle

At first I thought it was a music holder, but then, it wouldn't be curved. I think it might be a device to hold a lightweight plate, or something curved, that might be too hot to handle with one's hands.

Monocle holder like during an long play when you can't keep it lodged in your eye for a long period?

There are a lot of great comments.
I'm going to guess it's a fancy Lady's shoe horn.

Fan handle.

Handle to hold program, menu, or fan.
#31 for auction bidding?seattleite 2018-07-26 16:07
the angles seem wrong to be a handle for something hot...perhaps it holds a card with one's number for bidding at an auction...
