Could it be a handle for a drawer or a cupboard?  Huh

Or part of a hook-and-eye hanger? 

Strange piece.  So crude that it is hard to tell date, though the rivet heads (?) look old.

How about a situla handle ring? At first glance it would seem like a bad design, but maybe it is bent to fit around the lip of the vessel.

Or, how about a torch holder?
