Again a few photos I found online; this time of a glass shaving bowl/scuttle of a design I've never seen before. As far as I can tell it's a vintage item, but it must have been an unusual design even back when since I've not seen anything even remotely like it before.

The possibility do off course exist that the site I found it on is simply wrong, and that its intended use was not shaving... but if so, I have even less of a clue what it might be for.

I don't see it as a scuttle since there is no good way to transfer heat from the outer bowl to the inner one. Chips n dip is one possibility, but the inner bowl looks a bit small and hard to get into.  Perhaps a serving dish with food in the outer bowl and utensils in the inner bowl?

Eat shrimp AND shave at the same time!  It's genius!  Lather with cocktail sauce.
