Silver plated squirrel

Silver plated squirrel I bought earlier this year. It seems to be made of pewter. It is not marked. What were it used for? I thought It may be a pipe stopper or something, but not certain.

Probably a finial from something like a fire iron, even perhaps a button hook, shoe horn or whatever.
