I vote tear holder. Looks about right.
Those are the same ones that I found as well!! It looks really similar to the one kwhite bought!! How cool would it be if you could get it certified or something as to its date. Imagine the history behind it!
OMG yes that is it. It is right here. I would have never thought of that. Thanks Stitch!!!
You should get in touch with the Keno twins or History Detectives. You could be a TV star!

I would say I am antique but never saw one of those. How amazing. Thanks for sharing and thanks to those who did the research to come up with an answer..tear holder.
Yes, I was raised with everyday antiques of yesterday years. Some things have been lost due to "progress", but good memories linger on forever.

My first guess was a whistle of some sort and after this additional information, I'd say a whistle for sure.Originally Posted by kwhite
