It is either a caviar server or a master salt.

It's an open salt dish - English, with a cobalt blue liner.

Why don't the whatsits ever include size/dimensions ?Without a frame of reference this thing could be a chamber pot or a salt celler.

If it is large enough for the bottom of a wine bottle, then it is a wine bottle coaster ----it looks too fancy to be a salt dish.
