A tool you hang on the wall to put leek or celery in.

It does not hang on the wall (unless you want to put it there for storage between uses).

Does the other side of the metal with the holes resemble a grater?

If you flip it over it looks exactly like it does this way.

A trivet.

No. The item being held has not yet been heated.

Not quite accurate.

The object that is being held has been hot, and will be again, but it is (probably) cool at the moment.

The other side of the metal, not the other half of the device ...

Sort of looks like it might be one, but no, it is not.

The other side of the metal plate does not resemble a grater any more than this side.

OK, here is one. What is it used for?



Bumping the pictures so I don't have to scroll down to it each time.

Is it a knife holder to keep them from bumping in the dish washer?

Sure about that?
The side, not the front.

WOW! that was a good one.

Vintage 1950's Slice-a-Slice Bread re-slicer. This little gadget allows a single slice of bread to be easily and efficiently sliced in half for making tea sandwiches and Hors d'oeuvres.

Quite certain. It is only about 1/2" thick.

We have a winner. The same object was also sold for slicing bread slices to make crunchier toast.

looks like a grill basket for grilling something small and fragile. Mushrooms? Cherry tomatoes?
