It is not used to clean things and it is not a filter.

It is about 2" in diameter, maybe a little less.
Aside from the bristles, which are a plastic, I can only guess the outside housing is plastic. I cannot find any info on that, nor can I tell myself. It's lightweight for sure.
Sorry, YT, none of the above.

Is it an attachment to something and/or does it rotate?

Is it some sort of positioning device?
What I'm thinking is that it's some sort of holding device for a rod or shaft. The rod is inserted into the holder through the open space and the bristle-like thingies hole the rod in place.
