This object is a wire rug beater.  Before vacuum cleaners were a common household appliance, rugs and carpets had to be cleaned in another way. Dirty rugs would be taken outside and hung over a clothesline or railing, and this tool would be held by the user and swung against the fabric until the dust and dirt came free.
