Mystery Object

We found this bit o’Irish porcelain in the back of a cupboard while settling into a new apartment.

We had no idea what it was, but for some reason it spoke to us. It survived several kitchen reorganizings, mug purgings, and an international move. But we still didn’t know its true purpose. Until now.

Can anybody guess? The interior is smooth, glazed porcelain; outer dimensions: 2 1/2″ high x 2 1/2″ diameter at widest point.

(The answer will be posted tomorrow.)
