This is a 1000ml vintage hand-blown glass wine thief or calabash by Durover of Hungary, used for sampling wine from the barrel.  Insert the end into the side bunghole of a barrel laid horizontally.  Draw on the mouthpiece to siphon a sample into the tube, and bowl if required, and hold it with a thumb over the mouthpiece.  Place the end over the sampling glass and release the required amount of the wine into the glass.  In perfect condition.  Hungary, circa 1960.
