Does anyone have an idea what this object is? It bears the maker's mark for Simons Bros. of Philadelphia and is numbered 2041. Perhaps a tea strainer or other tea implement of some sort?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think the term used is Sugar Sifter. The scoop allows you to scoop the sugar and the holes allow you to sprinkle it onto the desert.

I have never used one and may be all wet!

I have always thought it is a nutmeg sifter.

What size is it?
I think it is smaller than it looks in the photo and it is a spoon that was used with a salt cellar to serve salt. Scoop first and the rotate to shake some out.

We have several and they work really well.
