I shared the photos with my SIL who teaches at Mississippi State's College of Veterinary Medicine. Their consensus is a Speculum...Old and unusual...

I doubt that is is a speculum.
It seems to be something to mold or push something together not apart.

It definitely looks like a mold to me. I agree with the others who say it doesn't seem to be spreading "things" apart, but rather making something into that shape. Actually, I agree with Keltin about it making animal (or really kinky people) suppositories!

The people at the sale thought it was an ice cream scoop from Isley's

I saw a Pittsburgh Places show on public TV and remember them using a long pointed spoon/scoop to make the rocket or mile high cone(forget the name)

If you examine the device carefully can you find any patent numbers? Perhaps inside the handle where the spring is located.

If you can find a patent number you can easily look up the patent at http://www.USPTO.gov
