I'm wondering if it's a Piloncillo (Mexican brown sugar) mold? Sure has the cone shape that piloncillo has. Hope the image shows.

I think it looks like a mold for making lead fishing weights.

I have lead molds and this is nothing like any I have ever seen.
Weight would be around a pound or more.

It is most definitely NOT a speculum. It would never work. As a woman and mother I've seen enough to know what one does and this would not be able to do it. Plus like someone else said, this is not a precision instrument. It looks like a cheap kitchen gadget that never caught on.

As for the fishing weight mold, sure it would get hot, so you would have to use heavy work gloves with it.

Marty, I think you are onto something. The shape is right on. I linked to that one on ebay and it looks exactly the same, or is it the same one we've been talking about? I think you win this one.

It has the quality of a medical instrument
My neighbor is an OR nurse and she did not know what it is and said it was probably not something medical
