Pretty sure that's a pan gripper. I wouldn't toss it... A different interest, but like our GT's, it's collectible!

I was thinking some sort of canning tool maybe. Pan gripper makes sense with groove for rolled edge of pan and lifting on handle to squeeze tight.

How often do you see a pan that doesn't already have a handle?

Yeah!

 

Hobos could use it to heat canned beans over a fire.
