    Well, I used to have one, but do not remember what it was for. I am pretty sure it was an "extra" from a tupperware party. I am 79, and my memory bank is a bit "used up". How about putting your fingers in the "grooves", your thumb in the round hole and painting your nails? Or, like one of you said, maybe it is a foot for a lame duck.
    If anyone knows, please tell us.

    I guess only Tupperware would make something like that. What I loved most about this post are all of the comments. It's been great chuckling at all of the responses! We're such a great group!! Thanks for brightening my night!

    I think Msbaby is correct. I believe you do put your your fingers in the "grooves", your thumb in the round hole and paint your nails.

    Maybe it is for pressing waves into pie crust edges.

    LOL Yes, you win one. The only thing I like is the dooh dahs for peeling oranges. Got to have a drawer full of those since I got a large family and several orange trees.

    It looks like something to decorate the edge of a pie pastry.

    This is correct. My aunts used them to go around the cake making it wavy on the sides. If I am wrong then they invented that use for them.

    I sold Tupperware in the 80s and never saw it before. But I was thinking it would be a great template for making slippers for your duck.

    It's a shoe tree for your duck's shoes. Can't let them get misshapen.
