It looks like the type of thing a salesman gifts to customers or maybe something that was an internal gift for dealers or employees. These are guesses on my part though so take them with that in mind.

Candy dish for the home, paper clip dish for the office????  Giving stuff away as advertising once was quite common.

possible ashtray.  Looks like a promotional item given to customers as a good will token.
