Thank you for participating! The item is a napkin ring with a chick figure, wishbone form, in silver. Hallmarks for Birmingham, “V” standing for 1920, and “C & CH” for C & C Hodgetts.
I could not find it either. This also happened a few weeks ago.
I also vote for a napkin ring but do not see Kovels answer anywhere. Next weeks is already posted with no answer given for this item. Did I miss the answer?
I change my vote to wishbone napkin ring.
A tool to remove eggs from dye solution for colored Easter eggs.
It’s a wishbone and baby bird napkin ring.
A egg holder 😉
Possibly a knife rest…

George V Sterling wishbone & game napkin ring circa 1922.
From the size, and the chick, I would guess it’s an egg holder, to make it easier to remove the egg from boiling water.
It would be helpful to viewers to give the dimensions in inches in addition to metric units. Thanks for helping!
