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 firstname.lastname@example.org
