Could it be a Widget? Everyone talks about them but I have never seen one.

I was told it was an Isley's ice cream scoop.
I am trying to confirm or deny this.

Thanks, Marty

Marty...I think this is a special scoop used by Isley to produce their Skyscraper Cones....Hope it helps!
Edit; The small spoon was a tasting spoon.

That is what I thought.
I remember seeing that pointed scoop on a Pittsburgh Places show but was not able to find one on internet.

I wonder if it could of been used to fill the bottom of a cone?

I paid $1 for it at an estate sale and they said it was an ice cream scoop from Isley's

I don't know, but doubt it. The special patented spoon above was probably the only tool used to make the Skyscraper Cones...

it`s Not medical (surgical).
there are far to many inclusions and and nooks and crannys that would serve as breeding ground for all manner of nasties that wouldn`t get targeted by sterilising, Autoclave, Ultrasound, MW etc...

just look at the plain steel spring for instance!
I have medical kit here incl Specula that date back to the 1800`s and even they are far more medically suited than this instrument, yes even the ones that are Banned now for medical usage.

this is either food or Vet related, or some strange country where humanity is not of prime concern! :)

thinking of Humanity Not being of concern, maybe it`s Dental!!!!!!

You've heard of sand castles. Well this instrument is used to make the sand cones for Chinese rockets used to defend the sand castles. And to make it even more interesting, you take crawfish and insert them into the device before packing it with wet sand, so when the little critter breaks free, you can scare you little sister. Mwaaahahahahaha

But really folks, I would think this a food tool, mabe a mold to help shape dough, or a batter around a hot dog, something like that. You could use it to make corn dogs, or pigs-in-the-blanket. Once the food was deep fried, you would just release the handles to release the food from the mold.

I could be way off base, but that's probably what I'd use it for, or maybe for an ice-cream scoop.

A few things that ran through my head are that it could be some kind of crucible holder. That is, itís designed to hold a vessel like a beaker, test rube, smelting pot, etc that gets hot.

Of perhaps its use to hold a torpedo bottle, or used in the shaping and making of a torpedo bottle.

Or maybe itís a candy mold of some kind where you pour the hot liquid candy into it, then insert a stick and then open the mold for an instant lollipop.

Some how, I doubt itís any of those,.....but they did cross my mind.

It still looks to me as a medical device quite old maby a dental tool or a vet tool.Looks like you can take it apart to sanitize.It does not look like a cooking tool if it was we should be able to identify it.
