Can You Help Identify This Liturgical Object?

Dear readers, perhaps you can help identify an object that was found in storage at the Episcopalian diocese of Oregon office. A Episcopalian priest of the diocese has asked my help, but I myself haven’t a clue.

Notice that this glass dish has a cover with four holes in it.  I would have assumed a dish for chrism, but I don’t understand the need for the holes. Three photographs of the object follow.

Thanks for your help!
