Identify This No. 143

What is the dark purpose of this sinister object?

More about "Identify This"...

Previously, in ID This No. 141...
A number of you got it right. It was an antique bobbin for a yarn factory. In fact what you can't see is that at the other end it has been converted to a teaspoon. Odd sort of thing to buy. But, well such is my peculiar outlook on life!

Honorable mentions...
Vicki Kell - plumb line Net says:-->> Oooops! No, but a Doohicky Award! Yaahy!

Kathy A - A ring sizing thing. Net says:-->> Oooops! No, but a Doohicky Award! Yaahy!

judith deacon - ? spindle from a spinning wheel? Net says:-->> Oooops! No, but could have been, so a Doohicky Award! Yaahy! In fact it came from a large yarn factory. There were thousands of these things there.

Beth - Pill crusher? Net says:-->> Wow! Didn't see that innovative one coming. a "Doohicky Award!" Yahaaaa!

Debbie Orlando - Bobbin. Net says:-->> Correctomundo! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeha!

Howard N - It is no doubt an old thing made of wood with some metal at the end that has a bit of rust on it. Depending on the length of the gizmo I would say it is a measuring device used to determine how much wine/spirit is left in the bottle. A dip stick of sorts used by the visually impaired primarily, and a collectors item for sure. Net says:-->> But then again - NO! LOL. Nice try, a Doohicky award! Yeehaaa!

Mike Warren - A wooden antenna for picking up signal in the 1830's? Actually I think Marilyn had a good guess. Net says:-->> A huge LOL at this one. a "Doohicky Award!" Yahooo!

Diana Horn - Something to hold a large spool of thread. Somehow I know I have seen one of these before. You always get me thinking-love that. Net says:-->> Obviously the thinking mans bobbin! LOL

Miley - It's a wooden thing with a metal bit on the end... derrrr... Net says:-->> Oooops! No, but a Doohicky Award! Yaahy! Well, it is, but thats not the point... LOL.

Jane - Okay... going to make a right idot of myself now... but just wondered if it could be something to do with holding a scroll.... thingy wotsit.... okay walks off very quickly feeling very embarassed... lol!! Net says:-->> Don't be embarrassed - ya gotta be nuts to be here in the first place so why be embarrassed about it - LOL. Tee hee! A Doohicky award! Yee haaa!

june milner - Is it the spindle that holds the string to start and old fashioned toy.. a spinning top. Net says:-->> Oooops! No, but a Doohicky Award! Yaahy!

Diane Owens - A spindle from a textile factory? Net says:-->> Spot on! Yee haaa!

Paula Cook-Farkas - It's obviously a whack a mole stick! Net says:-->> Had to put this one in late because it made me laugh so much! Excellent. A bopping Doohicky award! LOL... chuckle chuckle.

Thanks for keeping me entertained. Hope you had fun too...

I am going to say this is a nut cracker, i.e., walnuts, pistachios, and the like. It's even designed to easily scrape the shells off the table that you crack them on!

Hemlock does not have the killer effect when stored in a clear bottle. So, it is therefore stored in dark amber, just like fine spirits...aaaargh!

I have absolutely no idea.

Glass stopper for a bottle...I'd like to think from some patent medicine promising beautiful skin and a youthful appearance.
