Advice please on what this is . Pic.

Found this at St Vinnies thinking I could use it for necklaces. Asked the staff and they said maybe for ties. A bit of a mystery.

it's approx 34cm x 4.5 cm. 12 swinging arms to top row and same to bottom. 3 lots of 2 hooks below. Curious to know what it is. TIA.

That's what the lady in st vinnies said but the length of each arm is 5cm and it has a small closed rounded end.

Don't think it is part of machinery, not with wood.

And the screws are to go into a wall not onto machinery.

Screw it onto the wall in the back of the wardrobe to hang your winter shirts with coat hangers ?

 

But I think david is onto something with the tie rack.

i seem to remember dad having something like it on the inside of his wardrobe door when i was growing up, remember when ties were super wide and the crazy patterns...lol the 60's and 70's, like wild man.

 

oh and you could also hang belts on them.
