    The piece inside your egg should lift out. Originally there were 4 small condiment jars for oil, vinegar, salt and pepper that sat into the 4 holes. This was part of a fancy place setting during the late Victorian time period.
    Your last photo is too blurry to read the marks.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks for your information and time. The bottom reads M & W then there is a number w4087

    I may be wrong but I think this is actually used to hard boil eggs in. It looks like a candle would sit on the bottom to generate heat. The holder would accept 4 eggs and you simply lift it out when the eggs are done.

    Fastlane, you're not wrong. It is indeed an egg cooker. Here is one very similar. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-victorian-egg-cooker-late-1800s

    Pretty cool item. I had never seen one before so it was purely a guess. Glad I was correct though. LOL
