Anyone have a clue what this is????

This was left to my mom by her great uncle in his will. Please help us identify what the heck this thing is. Thanks!

We need a bigger picture to see it better - although on first glance I have no idea whatsoever! Did the spoon come with it? Does it have any marks or engraving?

Its a harris & shafer

Here is one a little closer.

Lets try this again

and no the spoon did not come with it

No help I’m afraid. You can make your pictures much bigger as the forum allows a maximum picture size of 500 pixels in either width or height. Your pictures are currently 214 x 160 pixels. A close-up or two of the parts would probably be helpful too. Are there any moving parts? Does it come to pieces?
