I don't have any info on this object, a guy I know showed me it a few months ago and he had no idea to its purpose.

Any ideas?

Pocket watch protecter, maybe? You could still see the time through the holes.
Either that, or a prop from a Harry Potter movie.

Need to lay a ruler beside it for size comparison.

Any markings on it?

I'm guessing but it looks like something a compass would fit into.

I've never seen anything like it.

We meet in the marina car park and had nothing to place alongside for comparison when taking the pic on my mobile. In hindsight I suppose I could've placed it in the palm of my hand...

From memory, I would say it was about 2.5" dia.

The only markings is a number '25' that can be seen in the 2nd & 3rd image when viewing at 100%.

Do you know where they got it from?  It's definitely a conversation piece!

How about some type of bottle opener? You would pull the chain to cinch it tight around a bottle cap, and then yank upward to pull cap off.

Mousetrap.   OK, I go along with the fob idea or an end cap on some kind of storage tube or drain pipe.

Moyers use it at a Bris. They can do 5 baby boys at one time.

Is there any residue or burn marks inside? It reminds me of the thing you see the catholics burning incense in in the movies.

This is not my guess, but it could be right. Hey, probably a coincidence here?

You put a round colored glass 'lense' on one side and by pulling the chains this keeps it in place. The 5 holes allow light to shine through the glass. There was probably different colored pieces of round glass.

A decorative folk art item.

This sounds the best to me.  It might be only the lid and have a brass "bottle" that is held in place by the round clamps.  "Insenser" is what they are called.

Why not carry it to a Catholic church and ask?
