It looks like some kind of bender or for making curves in something? Or perhaps for holding something that is curved or bent? I'm not sure if it is a woodworking device or not…Interesting though…

looks like an early version of a handsaw mitering devise .
run the wood in against the fence and clamp down and with hand saw in holder ,
( saw with no back to it )saw part and flip over .
do this on both sides , and you get a miter . ?

either that or it's the english equivalent ,
of the tortilla maker .

Looks like a Miter Corner Clamp to me…
In the picture, the corner is on the other side… with the pieces going into the corner from Left & Right, then clamped down.

... Well, it is just a 'guess'... :)

I agree - I think the wing/bracket/clamp/thing is probably backwards. I can't figure why you would want to clamp a miter joint with a gap. It would be simple enough to put the post somewhere that the joint could close.

I love the description: "SOMEONE THOUGHT IT WAS POSS[ibly] AMERICAN" ... oh, well that explains it!
