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.

Its made of metal. It extends, it has a clamping device on the end that pulls apart but is spring loaded so it retracts as if to grasp something. Pics included.

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