I think it's an empty bottle for lubrication in the factory or for use with Leica Microscopes in the lab. There are three pieces: the glass bottle, the glass stopper, and the glass pipette.

Looks pretty similar to this item which sold for € 312 back in 2015:

My guess is that it is an old immersion oil bottle with pipette.
