Could be a pitch pipe, used by choral groups, though unusual in shape.

On e-bay it is called "Alte Stimmpfeife". I have a similar one after my grandfather, but do not know how to use it...

Hello - I just found the same thing at an antique store in Germany - I wonder if it is a device to set a tone?
