Oh, this is definitely is used as potato masher, at least in my house it always was. My mother still uses it at her house. Actually pretty much everybody I knew back in Soviet Union had the same tool for mashing potato. It was not until maybe 70-s when the new style, the metal thing with holes, started to show up.

I really do think, antic shop is the way to go.

I was thinking a "key" of some sort. I remember seeing something like this before. Where the tool in question is inserted into something to either open it or to raise it?

Just throwing more fuel on the fire. This is driving me to drink. Well actually i already drink, but I can use this mystery tool as a new excuse.

Devil's advocate here----- but why would the middle tine be sharper? Yeah, I know, there could be dozens of reasons---- just driving you to drink more.

You mean that imaginary door that someone imagined? I'd like a picture of that imaginary door, please.

I don't think the middle on is especially sharper. With the slanted side coming from both sides, it just looks sharper. The shape of what ever it does with the two "slots" appear symmetrical. I also thought early on that it might fit into something else to work.
