Just after midday today we arrived back in civilisation (well Suffolk anyway) after our trip to Sweden via Norway - Trondheim Airfield. The trip was organised by our second daughter (who blogs as Nea) and Ann. We stayed with Nea and her husband, her 15 and (very nearly) 18 year old daughters. I have a lot of holiday snaps to foist on my readers eventually; but in the meantime here are some photos of an antique object I purchased whilst in Sweden. I think it will make a very decent MYSTERY OBJECT, in that I shall be pleasantly surprised if any of you can guess its correct (well - primary - purpose). It is made of wood (I think straight grained mahogany), and is just over ten and a half inches long. See if you can tell me its purpose, date and country of origin. In view of where I purchased it the country of origin should be Sweden, but even that is a little doubtful in that the only illustration I can find of a similar one states that it was made in England!
I will eventually publish more photoes to illustrate its purpose. It is lovely to be home, and I wish you very happy guessing.
Warm regards - Mike and Ann.
