It's a brass inkwell with a missing liner.

Urn for infant's ashes?

That's an incense(sp) burner!

If the figures are separate casings pegged-on, I guess it's a Victorian lost wax replica of a Roman oil lamp, minus wick-holder. If all one casting, then perhaps original.

I would guess that it's a Tourist trinket from somewhere like Heraklion

It's definitely an Isle of Man ashtray.
