The instant I saw the first picture in the OP I thought tortilla warmer
. Except it looked like ceramic and I've never seen one that's ceramic. But now that you say it is
plastic I'm almost certain it is made for keeping tortillas or some other flat bread warm. I've been served warm tortillas in something looking exactly like that (but less aged) in Mexican restaurants. If it were ceramic the container would cool off. The lighter weight of the plastic insulates it so that the contents will stay warm.
It's a tortilla warmer. Or maybe they have similar containers in other cultures, so perhaps it's a flat bread warmer etc.
