It is called a harness vice. It was used by harness makers to hold leather together while it was stitched. Horse collars, and harnesses, and some saddle work were sewn on these.

It appears to be a wooden-clamp of sorts.
Do you have any more information, or is this a picture-quiz?

. +1. I'd call it a vise of some sort.
Yes, it is an old wooden vise, for a bench
It's an old wooden bench vise, the tenon on the back would fit into a mortise on the bench. Don't throw it out, don't refinish it, probably worth about 100 bucks at an antique fair.
