Found meself wondering, over the last few days, why the place has such a hot house feeling to it, and realised it is because of the flowers given by our youngsters to Ann to help celebrate last week's birthday. They look , and smell, wonderful; and appear to be lasting well.
Once again, I must stress that the item shown in the two photographs below is not, strictly speaking, a mystery object; but it might be interesting to try and decide when it was made, and where. This is not quite as simple as you might think. Even the 'experts' have been discussing the when and where of them for years now, so if you'd all contribute your two penn'orth, it would be interesting.
The picure below shows how the two parts of the item are joined together, i.e. by a very coarse threaded, and somewhat tapered screw. So fire away chaps (and chapesses) and lets see what light (tee hee) you can throw on the subject.
