We recently acquired this piece and don't know what it might have been used for. It is a carved piece of wood measuring 6" in length and is decorated with a dragon design. We believe it's Chinese but not sure. The top comes off and it appears to have been used as a shaker of some sort. The top has four holes, all the other dots are decorative. The inside has a dark residue from years of use. Could it have been to separate tea leaves and dust? Any help would be appreciated!
