Mystery Object

Can you guess what this mysterious object is? Answer is below in extended.

It's a model of Mistletoe (the stuff you're supposed to kiss under), made of wood, wire, and paper mache. Acquired by the Manchester Museum Herbarium in 1917.

Not even close. Looks like a broken frog statue with tortilla chips glued to it.
