Answer from what is it?: Ballot box or blackball box, black and white marbles were kept in the open end, a white marble dropped into the hole signified a supporting vote while a black one signified a "no" vote.

Congratulations to Kevin Register, who won this round of the game!

I quite enjoy some of the wild guesses here. You guys are a hoot!

Looks like a game to me, where you flip a ball out of the open part like flipping a pancake, and try to catch it in the hole, you can flip towards you, or away, since the top slides back and forth. People seem pretty sure that it's a voting box, but the description says the top slides to cover either side. If only one side is ever covered, how can that work? It just reminds me of something I've seen with a wiffle ball.
