    I took this pic in an antique store in Virginia. I was going to inquire, but got into buying a pair of aquamarine earrings and completely forgot.

    It is a device used most commonly in the medical treatment of circus elephants. It is affixed to an elephant's foreskin to stretch it out while they circumcise the elephant. They are very rare and you don't seem many of them now days as the practice of circumcising elephants has pretty much gone by the wayside.

    I know, but googles reverse image search doesn't just look for the identical pic, but anything similar.

    Just a shot in the dark but I'm thinking Mezoamerican. Could be completely wrong but that's the impression I was left with when I saw it.
