So the chain comes out of that little arm sticking out? What is the curved part of it? Having a hard time wrapping my head around how that socket is put together. 
I would definitely clean it up though to the point of being useable (although don't remove the patina) and hang that thing up somewhere around the house. A nice shop or a "man cave" (I hate that phrase and hate using it) would be the best place to me. I'd hang the thing in my room though. :D
