An odd and interesting shaving bowl / scuttle

Again a few photos I found online; this time of a glass shaving bowl/scuttle of a design I’ve never seen before. As far as I can tell it’s a vintage item, but it must have been an unusual design even back when since I’ve not seen anything even remotely like it before.

The possibility do off course exist that the site I found it on is simply wrong, and that its intended use was not shaving… but if so, I have even less of a clue what it might be for.
