Not sure what to call this. If you could give me any information on this tool. Received this from a friend who found it in an old home. It does not have any markings on it. Would like to know what it is called, how old it is and possible value to collectors.

This is a scroll saw for cutting decorative open patterns -- a mechanical version of the fret saw.

Pretty obviously manufactured, probably in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
