It could be a scoop. Look at this antique split scoop found on this site.

I contacted the folks who run the site Keltin just referred to. Sent them a photo. Here's their reply:

Hi, I don believe this is a scoop. As far as I know it is a croquette maker or mold for dumplings or something like that.

This thing has been driving me crazy - what the heck is it??? At a friend's house yesterday, she showed me her new pecan sheller. I instantly thought of this - it really looks very similar. However, hers has a series of ridges inside that seem to be for the purpose of gripping the nut securely and the item you have doesn't have that. (BTW, hers really is the best nutcracker I've ever used - I've never shelled pecans so easily.) Maybe you could try putting some different nuts in there and see if it functions as a nutcracker? Here are pics of one like my friend has:

I guess the pics didn't show up. Here's an ebay listing for one of these so you can see.

I was hoping that I found some rare item that would make me a fortune on ebay.


The people at the estate sale suggested that it was an Isley's ice cream scoop but that is very unlikely.

I can not think of anything that I have ever cooked that I could of used this on but some type of mold or scoop is most likely.
Guess it is just another item to loose in a drawer or closet.

Thanks to all that helped.

I subscribe to a magazine called Reminisce. They have a section where you can ask for help with this kind of thing. Most people get an answer and many senior citizens (70's-90's) read the magazine. Some one from that generation may know what it is since it was part of an estate sale. They do have a website Reminisce Magazine Good Memories of the 20s, 30's, 40's and 50's where you can see about submitting your object.

Thumbs up I just found this in a box of stuff that I did not know what to do with

While cleaning out a closet today I found this ........ again
I remembered this posting and looked at it again for recommendations of what it might be.
Will be listing it on ebay as a press for a croquet or quinelle

Know it is something that I will never use

Any new ideas of what it might be??????????


Thanks, Marty

Now that I can see the picture, I'd say check with some older gynocologist about this thing before listing in the cooking section.
