It's an antique pacifier.

The outward facing spikes are to help fend off vicious stoats and wombats, whose numbers grew so large in the 19th century that they would overrun towns and villages in a massive search for food. Starvation would make these animals brazen and aggressive, and it was not uncommon for them to launch themselves at the faces of infants to procure a quick meal of tongue and tears.

Thousands of young lives were saved thanks to this ingenious solution. It deserves far more respect than a free t-shirt.

Very nicely done. Another spot of lane lingo for you: 4-6-7-10 split is also called 'the Nixons', as it leaves the two outside pins on the back rows on each side, which looks similar to Dick's double-victory salute.
