Weird object found


today in art school someone came up with an object found after cleaning up.
I took some pictures of it.
Can anyone identify this and explain what its function was ?
That would be highly appreciated.

Looks like a slide holder for an old large format camera.

Yup, Yorky hit it on the nose, that's a film/plate holder.

You should show it in the Photography forum. I'm sure they'd love to see it and they might be able to give you more information about it.

Darn, I thought it was a silk screen frame.
