Chinese Mystery Object with Lion

It has been a while since I have put up a mystery object. Today’s object is boldly carved from wood in the shape of a lion, and is about seven inches long. It has a practical use (rather than a merely decorative one), and is an object still commonly found and used today, although usually in a less-decorated form. 

What is this lion used for?

As usual for mystery objects, if you know or can guess what the object is, enter it in the comments below. Correct answers will be saved until after the revealing post, so comment moderation is enabled for this post only.

Good luck!
