Q: Help! What is this mystery kitchen tool?

Editor: What an unusual tool you have there! The slats and the ring at the bottom really make me wonder what it is made for. I wonder if it's a press of some kind, or if it's a tool for shaping or portioning dough? Compared to the hand in the photo, it looks like a fairly large tool to be used in the kitchen!

Kitchn readers, do you have any idea what this funny-looking tool is for or what it could be called? Have you ever used one before?

Next question?
