three bone or ivory pegs stored inside small box

My mom's neighbor has this turned wooden box, which was in her mother's house for decades. No one can figure out what purpose it served, but it clearly served a very specific purpose. It has characteristics of a Victorian hair receiver, or a spice jar, but it just seems too complicated to be either. Anyone know what it is?
