Despite its name it was used mostly in cooking (and still is) it should hold 15ml fluid and 1 ounce (rounded) flour.
As to age, it looks to have some silvering left so I’d guess EMP. Electro Metal Plating. This became popular in the mid 1800’s. The design is a common one so could be anything from then to now and given the thin handle I’d guess it was used for serving rather than cooking.
You really wanted to know that, didn’t you
