Mystery object of the month: What is it?

Elaine Gill of Moose Jaw, Sask., writes, “This item measures about 4.25 inches in length and the silver part plunges down to open the silver pinchers at the end. This isn’t the original box, but it’s the one I found it in, while cleaning out my mom’s place. Can anyone tell me what it would be used for?”

What do you think? Can you help Elaine solve this mystery?
