Yes, I\'ve seen and read info about this type of an artifact. My understanding is that it is indeed old.

Gosh, I wish I could remember where I saw an item exactly like that... but it was on the internet (a picture and description was given). Was almost identical to the one in your photo.

If I remember where I found the info I will definitely post it.... I\'ll try racking my brain for it.
