Carved ebony snuff ejector.
I really enjoy those superfine white Indian snuffs but getting them into my nose without a severe coughing fit is a challenge. Not with this gadget!! Just put a dose in the little bowl and spring eject it up into your nose! It does clog and stick easily but this can be remedied by tapping out the excess loose snuff powder after each use. I love it so much, I am ordering a second one!
