    Looks like a cheap bicycle handle bar bell to me, or an oatmeal raisin cookie.

    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.

    To me, it looks like the nubbin protruding from the body is fixed in place and is hollow and doesn't align with the seam, which makes me think it is something other than a mechanical bell.
