    A friend of mine posted this on Facebook asking if any one knew what it was. I'm such a curious person I had to put it on the site. Any one know about it?

      MYSTERY SOLVED :-)
      In french it is called "mâche-bouchon" roughly translate in "chewing-cork stopper"
      It was in use in chemist's to get appropriate stoppers for the potion bottles!

      They usually are in shape of a kind of crocodile.
