a Heliograph?

Stuart has been told that this tool is either a heliograph, a scoop for measuring grain or something to do with powder for guns..

With Customs&Excise, anything is possible......

Tom Martin has come up with a very persuasive attribution:

"I have never seen one in the flesh but I suggest that you have a reflector as used in D&F’s hydrometer testing apparatus. Catalogue page attached

Stamped “Custom & Excise” so post-1909, relatively modern."
