While last week’s mystery item had a slightly vicious look to it, it was actually something far more run of the mill — a vintage cherry stoner.
Tai Forrester was the first person to write in with the correct answer, just moments before Adrian Jack, Jose Navarro and Michael Gates. Readers guessed that it might be used for making the head piece of a hat or a tool for putting holes in leather belts or shoes.
Thanks to all of the readers who have jumped back into this weekly guessing game with vigour.
See you in 2017.
