This 1&1/2" rabbit unscrews with a rather long screw from the two bottom pieces, the reposse one and the plain bottom which is marked TIFFANY & CO MAKERS SILVER SOLDERED with these numbers 1160 on the left and 280 on the right. The middle piece seems to rotate but if something else was inserted between it and the bottom.

I do not know that it would continue to do so.
I have NO IDEA what it was made for.
Can you help?

Thank you Brent. I figured out how to find the thread and now know it is the centerpiece for a pin wipe. Any idea as to date of piece?

The "silver soldered" mark indicates that your piece is silverplated rather than solid silver. Tiffany manufactured electroplated wares between 1885 and 1939. My guess is that your piece was made circa 1885-1900.
