Any info or opinions on this?

Baltimore, MD(Zone 7a)

My Mom--long gone--bought our first house in 1957.

It was a small, sturdy bungalow-type house built in the mid 1930's-- sometime.
It had a room in the basement that was all concrete. walls--floor--ceiling.
We thought that this may have been a room where coal was delivered--or maybe a bomb shelter ?
A "cool room" for storing canned goods???

In the basement this was hanging above the utility tub. Seems to have been for holding
paper towels(?). Were paper towels around then? if not--then maybe it was used for hanging a hand-towel.

It is not in any kind of great condition. It is made from some kind of pressed board maybe 3/8" thick..
You can see this in the hanging hole in the picture of the close-up of the face.

Would this be considered Black Art--or just something someone made--for the fun of it.
There are NO markings on the back.

Thanks, Gita
