What is really strange is the urinal shaped object, because it is very small. Could it be meant for children, in your opinion? For sure not a snuff bottle.



Dear Giovanni,
Looking at the dimensions, I believe it was created as a humorous design for a snuff bottle. 
As a urinal, I don't think it would be practical for anything larger than a rat or squirrel.
Regards,
Tom

Dear Tom,

I managed to find a Chamber pot mimicking Snuff bottle.  Grin

With beautifully painted scales and five claws.

Best,
