got something very similar in the galley for hooking onto in rough seas. Bolted on thru sturdy cabinet framing at waist height. where did yours come from? might give a hint as to purpose.

Yes, they are pad eyes and they are bronze. Not brass.

The square shape look like they might be made to use for a boarding ladder.

I've been looking for a couple of those if you'd like to sell them. I've got a boarding ladder but no pad eyes to go with them.
kind regards,

The pad eye in your fingers looks a bit thin at the top. It may not be near its original strength.
