    It sure is pretty. Your dad sounds a lot like Norm Abrams.

    It looks to me that it should swivel, maybe its just stuck. If it is a window stop, its set just inside the window and set at the hight you would want the window to be opened. It will only turn 90 degrees...............

    It's a crank to open a shade for a window, or to open the window itself.

    I believe this is it. I think it's a 'stop' to opening a window only so far. That is, a double hung window.

    Window stop.........

    If it swivels. This would have been used on old wooden type windows. From what I can see of the one pic, it would have gone on the rightside of the window frame..............Up and down......
