Dan It is a candleholder that is nailed to the inside of the outhouse door at a height to have the flame right behind the cresent shaped cutout in the door. In the dark you can head straight for the light and not fall into the well unless the well is in a line between the back door and the outhouse.
It serves a double purpose as you can peruse the Montgomery Ward catalog during nightime trips to the outhouse.
