Interesting. Why do you think it's kitchen gear? Maybe lab equipment of some sort?

If I had to guess I would say an oil server/pourer of some sort. There 's a local restaurant that serves bread with herbed olive oil at the beginning of the meal - there's a rosemary stem in the oil and this would be a nice way to serve.

I think it is too elegant to be a piece of lab equipment.

I like the idea of being an oil pourer. That makes sense.
Only thing is the 1 inch diameter spout is rather large to pour oil at the table.....? I don't know.

Does it have any brands imprinted on it?
Made in china..Check Williams and Sonoma.They always have interesting gadgets.

Could it possibly be a grease and small particle separator?
For those that just can't stand to have anything good added to their gravy.

Neurotics!

Second thought is. It's a Hamster cage pocket sized Incubator.

It doesn't seem big enough for all the ice and it doesn't have a strainer to keep the ice out of the martini glass, but otherwise that's exactly what it looks like to me ...

We thought of that too but it seem too impractical as a shaker. It's a chore just to load the thing in the first place, unscrewing the retaining rode to break loose the glass jar. The process seems too awkward to use as a cocktail shaker. Also, there is no cap on the spout.

I still like the oil pourer idea.

That would make the whole cocktail-shaking process interesting!

A Google similar image search brings up everything from wedding rings to percussion cap pistols, but nothing that looks anything like the gadget we are trying to identify. Any idea what the capacity of the glass tube is?

I would guess about 1/2 liter at most.
