    okay here was my total bullmal answer when ask what it was:

    obviously due to the two threaded caps...its something that needs to be poured and needs the 2nd cap taken off to do it...so its an oil container or grease container of some type...

    again i got no clue

    Whatever that is, it's adorable! I hope it's not a mini grenade.

    Do the spouts pour from a single or divided chamber?

    Perhaps it's an oil and vinegar canteen? For people who prefer vinaigrette to soy sauce on their sushi?

    Can you put a quarter next to it and photo it again?

    Don't clean it. Antiques Roadshow sez that's a no-no.

    bones, that may be a component to an older style gas mask. If you can magnify the object so that I can see the etchings, I may be able to help. If you take it to an Army surplus store, someone may be able to answer your question. If asked if you well sell it, that means its worth something, and my advice is to say "thanks, but no thanks". I am sure someone here will know some who can take identify it and direct you to another source of more information.
