Guess the object, if you're correct post one for us to guess and so on.
Rules may change as we progress..

Here's a guess (try to be as precise as possible):

is it a crucible of some kind?  Cant make out the scale of it, perhaps one for creating toy lead soldiers or fantasy pieces?

It's not related to food or consumables. The spout is not hollow. This was used for fun.

ok this is going to be a wild guess, but based on the background image you used, the fact you said it was used for fun, the seemingly burnt looking innards, and its seemingly vintage age.

Is it a retainer to safely ignite gun powder, perhaps it was used by people to trigger fireworks/powder or something,  the protrusion being an end to attach a stick/handle for safe distance?

a wild guess though heh

lol.. ah didn't honestly think it was that,  nice.. ok here is the next one

For some the function of this might be obvious,  however I am looking for its specific historical application too,  I shall dispense some hints if people are struggling.

some gyroscope like thing?

yes,  but from where?

Here is a hint,  some of them where ""delivered""  to some cites in England, much to England's displeasure at the time.


EDIT: hehe, indeed Gilbert, has a striking resemblance to BB-8 :D
