It's an Indian Spice Container and I just picked it up locally. (without the spices). Luckily in my web search I saw that World Market had one for only $9.99. Some of those I've seen on Amazon were quite expensive and too large for my needs. It was fun filling it. Next, I have to find some recipes to use those spices!
Update: Check out this Chicken in Peanut Sauce I just made and which rated as FIVE Star. http://www.pbase.com/image/153937499
