What Is It?: A vi­cious-look­ing mys­tery item.

Vi­cious-look­ing mys­tery ob­ject

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

Are we read­ing too much into some­thing that isn’t re­ally there ... or are the Sun­day Tas­ma­nian pho­tog­ra­phers re­ally keen on mys­tery items that look vaguely like a tor­ture de­vice?

This week’s piece has a clamp for lock­ing it down and a curved and pointy bit of metal for ... well per­haps you guys can guess.

Does it look like it is primed and ready to stab some­thing?

This vi­cious-look­ing piece dates back to about the late 19th cen­tury, pos­si­bly the early 20th cen­tury.

It was un­cov­ered at An­tiques Ware­house in North Ho­bart.

If you know what this slice of his­tory is, please drop us a line at tassieliv­ing@news.com.au

Next week we will print the names of those with the cor­rect an­swer. And send the clues for our next mys­tery — good luck.
