Interested if someone can identify this object found at the site of some old houses.

Looks a bit like the detachable part of the old bike lamps.
The thing in the pic below attaches to the bike and the lamp slips over it with the same folded metal end as riveted to the one in your pic.



Maybe a fitting for indoor lamps that need to be lifted down to be refilled or have candles replaced?
The upper end would slide along a square shaft, with a bolt through the larger hole in the bottom pic to lock it in place.
