Antique Pew with Circular Piece attached to Hymnal Holder?

Answered
I have an antique pew that was given to me FREE! I've restored it as much as possible, but would really love to know what this circular piece was for - there was another one on the other side of the holder. Any ideas? My mother's guess was for a lady's gloves, parasol, or umbrella...
