What is it?:

Wooden it be nice to guess this one?

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - CONTENTS -

WE will go any­where to gather a good item for our What Is It? an­tiques guess­ing game – from the city out to New Nor­folk or back in the other di­rec­tion to Mar­gate.

Which, not co­in­ci­dently, is where we found this piece.

Mar­gate Train Traders is a hot­bed of weird and won­der­ful pieces from yes­ter­year.

This one is big, heavy and wooden and has South Pa­cific her­itage.

A per­son us­ing it would likely have swung it or thrust it for­ward with a huge amount of force.

What is it good for? Hope­fully to­day, ab­so­lutely noth­ing more than look­ing good on a shelf.

If you know what it is drop us a line at tassieliv­ing@news.com.au.

In next week­end’s is­sue we will print the names of those with the right an­swer and a new cu­ri­ous item for peo­ple to puzzle over.
