I have a lot of things which I can not remember acquiring. Maybe because I used to attend so many auctions and buy box lots.
This is one thing whose purpose I do not know, although I can make an educated guess. On the lip of the insert (where the handle is) it says: The IR comb company, Goodyear 1851.

The end of the unit has a series of holes. For dispensing water or what?
I think it would be for a medical, maybe gynecological purpose.

Yep, Index lady there it is! Kind of what I thought but wasn't sure. Now I will have to research the wreak!
Thank you! I had an inkling you would know!

I just told my DD about this item and she suggested I try to sell it. There is a business in Maine that sells old medical supplies. Guess I could try them. I don't want it but it does date from the Civil war period.
