Does Anyone Know What This Object Is?

Recommended Posts

mysteryobject.jpg

turned up at a jumble sale, no one knew what it was - any ideas? i have had a guess.

Masonic?<<-- highlight here after you have formed your initial impression on what it might be

if you highlight above you will see my guess, but i dont want to influence any initial thoughts or replies thats why i have obscured the text :)

if you don't think its what i suggest and dont know for sure what it is - what was your first thought on what it is ?

It's a Ming dynasty chopstick holder. Find the matching left one and you're well away!

:lol:

go on Flog It with it, estimated at £8,000,950 ~ £8,200,050 with a discretional reserve of five quid.

I'd have gone with hair pin. Looks like it could be quite old, I think the Romans were quite keen on sun symbols like that but, obviously doubt it's that old.

Also, hair wasn't invented until the 9th century.

However, I'm sure it won't be long until the conspiracy theorist, pyramid spotting, numberwangers uncover it's real purpose.

funny you should say that, weird lights have been following me around the street ever since i touched it.

That's numberwang!

Image is cr@p on there for Sun Moon.

As for it's purpose, is it a 'dibber' for planting seeds?
