This is a skimmer, strainer or colander for cream or other liquids to strain the

liquid off either cream.milk or for washing vegetables/fruits. This was not used for cooking

over a fire or for roasting since it has a wooden handle that would not be used on a fire.

It dates to 1800 to 1840 and has a value of $45 resale.
