It looks like part of a bicycle repair jig. You clamp the bike frame into the clamp, and can turn & manipulate the bike for repairs. It is missing the base.

I've got so many weird things like that that it's almost impossible to say. It's definetely a holder of some type. It could be an umbrella holder, bike rack, tool holder... When I see things like that on sale cheap I don't think so much about it's intended purpose. Instead I'm thinking how I can cut it apart and make it into something useful for me.

Well there is nothing on any other end to clamp anything else too. It def has a specific purpose for someone doing something specific. The price tag is just a Goodwill price tag. Doesn't say anything on it. I tried imagining what to do with it but didn't get far.. If no one grabs it for 6 bucks or whatever it was ill grab it when it goes half off, and list it as "universal mystery clamp". See if I get any bidders.
