I think I know what it is actually, but would like some unbiased confirmation.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Does the thing in the middle move up and down?

If it does, is it an ice cream maker? Pack ice into the outer container. Cream in the inner container. Mix while freezing?

It's a press, isn't it? Cheese, tongue, ... ?

The plate in the bottom of the inner "cake tin" piece is free. (that's the one the same size as the base of the centre circle, not the one on the bottom of the screw bit.) The outer circle is like a pot. The inner circle also lifts out.

Absolutely no idea but I will go with the cheese that needs the resultant product to be pressed down. Far to big for a garlic crush!

I would say it is not a cheese press, the action seems to be screw type, not spring, so the pressure would be too inconsistent as the whey drains out and there would not be the larger container holding the whey in on a cheese press. I also doubt it is a apple/cider press, as the inner ring would have pulp squeezing under the base and lifting the inner ring, and I would expect holes in the inner ring to help the juice drain.

I vote a tongue or brined pressed ham press.

Pressed tounge seems like a good option.
I was wondering if it was a terrine press? My recipes call for full golden syrup tins to press them, but no doubt there is a purpose built thingy to do it with.

Interesting comments but have no idea how you would press a tongue in that, have you seen the size of animal tongue ready for pressing.?
I have a tongue press, or what was used as one, there is no pressure needed to be put on the tongue to the degree you would get from this.
The tongue i have just pressed would have been larger than this 'instrument' as well

muri, but it could be a chicken tongue press, or even a sheep tongue press. When I lived in Timaru in 1983 I was able to buy cured sheep tongues for 5 cents each. Half a dozen made a good meal, but if I had been able to press them then I could have cooked lots at the same time :-)
When I was in England in 1984, I was shown a cabbage press, but that had holes in it to drain the liquid out. As you all know, cabbage must be cooked for 20 minutes before it is tender enough to eat. Then it is put into a press to get the vitamins and minerals out :-)
