I'm thinking it's a small mute.

It used to be the most used sordino on the market. Commonly used in orchestras. They were practical before the rubber sordino came around. They were always handy and on your strings. You just need to slide them up on top of the bridge.
Nowadays they are not that common but we still sell them at Fiddlershop.
