Might be an old deflection board. Hard to say from the angle. If you provide a couple more pics from other angles I might have a better/more definitive answer.

It appears, to me, that the large piece is meant to accept a shafted club head.  If so...it may have been used to hold the face vertical while aligning the lettering on a shaft...just after installing it.  I can't think of any reason such a set-up would be necessary but who knows?

The head of an iron shaft goes into the large part at the end.  The shaft is then slightly bent to fit into the  the two at the center and the front.  The club is then held in place by the stiffness of the shaft being bent slightly so it can be gripped.  

The whole idea is that the club head is aligned vertically and held in place for gripping.
