Unusual shutter dog (shutter holder). Woman's head lifts up and falls forward to allow the shutter to pass. Then you upright the head and it locks at 90 degrees as shown.
Black cast iron. Use for both left and right shutters.
Clever idea and while the woman's detail is not lost wax quality, it has a nice ambiance. Would also make a good valance scarf holder.
