Those curved ends would allow it to grip various widths of material.  Could be for stone work where the individual pieces are never a uniform size.

Or, it could be for carrying batteries.  I've seen those before, and the short handle doesn't apply too much pressure to the sides of the battery.  If you worked around cars and such back in the days before uniformity standards, you'd probably run into a lot of batteries of different lengths.

What is the shape of the handle that is out of the picture? Does it have an inverted L shape?

The jaws must be almost closed shut by the time that is vertical and preventing a pendulum swing of the load...

Can you re photograph showing the complete tool?
