Don't know, Buck.
I found it for sale on a website (not fleabay) when doing a search for another photo. It did not say the origin.

WhoooHooo, Plumies got it. It's an herb grinder, although I'm sure it would do the job on anything that fit in it.

I'm surprised someone didn't get it right away because they happened to have one.

You're up Plumies. Give us a good one

Oh! I was going to say wheat grinder but the groove just looked too small. Okay, I'll have to find something good. BRB
