It does rather look as though the central elements fixing them together are a bit more amateurish and uneven, so they might be cobbled together from something else, but for what purpose?

There are plenty of images of spinning wheels that seem to have finials at the end of various handles. But equally, you could imagine the finials on this as coming from some over-elaborate item of 19th-century furniture, say, a Jacobethan-style chair or sideboard.
