Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell exactly how large it is from
the photos with nothing to judge against. However, if I am not
mistaken, it looks pretty large to me and would be extreme over-kill
for that application.
Two other things occurred to me though... One was it might be a
grappling hook but then there is no way to attach a rope and the
hooks are not bent in the right direction. The other was as a hook
for hanging mailbags, possibly in a railroad mail car. (Apart from
being a cook, and an SCA member, I am also into sailing ships and
railroads, particularly steam locomotives).
