Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

AS our What Is It? sec­tion in the Mer­cury’s for­mer HOME mag­a­zine was such a source of en­gage­ment be­tween read­ers and our ed­i­to­rial team we’ve de­cided to res­ur­rect it here in Tassie Liv­ing’s new an­tiques sec­tion.

Each week we’ll be scour­ing lo­cal an­tique shops for any mys­te­ri­ous ob­jects that could po­ten­tially stump and or gen­er­ate in­ter­est among read­ers.

Since launch­ing in the mid­dle of last year we’ve had some crack­ers with the sec­tion gen­er­at­ing hun­dreds of re­sponses such as the brass pipe rack, right, and sev­eral other cu­ri­ous items in­clud­ing a pair of es­car­got tongs and a huge grain pes­tle from the 1880s, which com­pletely bam­boo­zled read­ers and no one got cor­rect.

If you have an item that you think might be suit­able for this sec­tion please email us at tassieliv­ing@news.com.au
