mystery object

Does anyone know what this is?  It's hanging in the kitchen, and apart from being a repository for dust and creepy-crawlies, I can't quite guess what it does.  It may be purely decorative.  It says "Made in the Philippines," but that may not be a big help in identification.  For all I know, you'll say - but every American kitchen had one of those in the 1960s!  However, since I don't know what it's called, I can't google it.  Maybe you could keep spills in it for lighting the gas stove?  (though the pilot light probably still worked at the time that this was hung).  I look forward to elucidation.
