To me it looks like a support for a folding seat. Something from a swanky theater with plush seats. . It has a pivot point and support for a chair bottom. The bottom hole is probably for a spring to pull the seat up when not used.

The shape looks like that of the hammer of a gun, but it is to big and very ornate.
