I bought this today at the Salvo's Bargain Basement in Fyshwick. It was a bargain too, I spotted it on the way out the door and was told what I'd paid for a few other bits and pieces "covered that too, love".It's stainless steel, about 10 cm from beak to tail. The centre flap comes up (as you see) and has a small hole in it. The base says: 18-8 Stainless Steel Hong Kong. So probably not a salt cellar? Some other kind of condiment container? A toothpick holder? Anyone know or have any other ideas?
