The threaded shaft appears to go all the way through the handle, so you can separate the pieces, allowing you to push the threaded end through a hole then reattach the handle.
The toothed cup would hold the top of the work piece firmly.
This is some kind of clamp, but what could it hold?
Hmm.

By the looks of the rotating, toothed cup, I'm guessing wood.
Those 2 angled prongs make this look like it has a pretty specific function.
Are those prongs solid or U shaped? I can't tell from the photo.
And why would the bases of the prongs be different.
A puzzlement.

Dang, no takers on this one.

I'm not sure it's a clamp. You wouldn't get much leverage just by twisting that smooth handle, which is what I think it is. A handle or adjustment 'knob' of some sort.
