Is it a decorative "seal" on some product? Similar to the red fake wax seal on a Tanqueray gin bottle.

Not a seal. This item is used by people all over the world, and of any age at all, from newborn to senior citizens.

Is it used in sewing as a protector?

Pacanis got it (just in time too, as we are leaving for awhile). It is a button.

You're kidding me......

Well, tell us more. Is it an antique? Is that really a woman's figure on it? Give me time to find something

All I know is I did a search for "unique buttons" and found that at ebay. It's just a decorative button.

It looks kind of like a bingo number holder!

Does it hold cotton balls? If not, it looks like it would work for that!
