What it looks like to me is some sort of infuser. You stuff leaves or other parts of plants into the center and drop it into a big stew pot. Later, you can remove it and get the leaves out of your stew while having gotten some sort of essence out of them. Though maybe it wasn't food related but used in the same way. Laundry treatment?
