Parcel gilt flask or finial

The shape is a miniature version of the large ceramic oil or wine containers with a pointed bottom for setting them in sand at the cargo hold of a ship.  That would suggest a similar use for this object as a small flask.  However, an almost identical object in a private collection is described as a furniture terminal (see: Spier, J., Treasures of the Ferrell Collection, Wiesbaden, 2010, p.292, cat.213)
