I just picked this up at an estate sale last weekend. Even though I wasn't sure what it was I knew it would come home with me. Fortunately there was a fellow treasure hunter there who knew exactly what it was. I'm wondering if any of you happen to know? Here are a few more photos...
I'm always in awe when I meet someone who knows how to determine age, provenance, history, utility, etc. which is why I think treasure hunting is so compelling. It's like living history!
Now go ahead and guess away... I promise to reveal what this mystery object actually is.
