    I haven't any idea what this is. It looks, to me, like a rat's head. It is rather heavy and comes unscrewed but there is little room inside. It came in this fitted case. There is a tag on it that is metallic that reads "Katherine's collection" but I do not know if that is the original tag. The case and the item both look very old. Can someone help me identify this item and its purpose? Thanks.

      Bottle stopper?

      Could the answer be so simple? I thought it seemed too fancy a presentation to be a stopper. RobinHawaii... did you mean 1891 or 1991?
