Need help identifying

Does anyone here know what the attached photos are of? This came with my boat, a 47' Vagabond, but the previous owner also didn't know what it was. It weighs about 3 pounds, is made of stainless, and swivels on one end.

I've racked my brains, but obviously I'm not up to the task.

That is the top swivel for a wire luff roller furling system. Probably Schaeffer.
It's the kind of system that doesn't have foils. Just a drum at the bottom and the swivel at the head.
Usually the halyard had a two to one purchase to get enough tension.

PS, the hook like things are made to slide up the forestay.
