Looks like an insulator on knob and tube wiring.

Looks to me like a crimp splice. A wire would be inserted in each hole and then crimped on with a tool. Is it aluminum?

Looked white ceramic to me but I seem to be color blind on some pictures. If it is aluminum then I agree with Tony.

That is H clip or H crimp that used on both POCO line and in other area for tap spices on the main runs.

I have few of them in stock in my shop

and yes you will need hydrallic crimp ram to make it really tight.

Yeah they are in diffrent size from small one to monster one.

Here the link in case you are wondering and this one of few items I get all the time

Looks like a cable crimp. To make a looped end on a piece of braided cable. Although I can't see why the middle would be so solid and the crimping fingers so skimpy. Maybe just some kind of line retainer. What do we win??

At our POCO we call them pal taps and they are crimped shut with a crimper that must have the correct die size. They are good for connecting dissimilar metals like aluminum and copper.
