That's a nice little hand pump. Just needs a wooden handle fitted in the empty socket.

Looks like the other piece is a surge chamber or sediment trap to be used with the pump.

I believe that pump is the Grand daddy of the water pressure system. My great uncle had a similar set up in his farm house before electric power came to rural arias. There would have bean a pressure tank along with it. It was pumped up by hand to build pressure in the tank against trapped air. Then you had water on tap!
