Default United Engine Co.

Hello
Anyone have a idea or know what this was used for? Its glass, about 4 3/4" long, 1 1/4" opening on the big end and 3/16" opening on the small end. Its embossed United Engine Co. "See - Thru" Lansing Mich on one side, Pat. May 23 16 No. 2 on the other. I thought maybe a glass funnel, why glass
Thanks
Rob Leonard Dowling MI.

It was used on milking machine. A couple of them sold on ebay last fall along with a original ad.

Believe it is the part that connects to the cow (can't think of the correct term at the moment).

Hey thanks Jon, mystery solved, that would have been my second guess.

I think it's called a teat thingy.
