THE answer to last week’s question was a snuff box from the 1880s.
A regular of our What Is It game, Stew Edwards, was first in with the correct answer this week. Fiona Taylor, Maxine Burger, Kristian Bearman, Vicki Hadrill and Adrian Jack all hard the right answer, as well.
As usual there were some excellent suggestions, which often generate as much of a buzz in the Tassie Living corner of the Mercury as a correct answer would — a holder for matches, a cobbler’s shoe mould, a storage item for needles and/or a shoe stretcher. All incorrect but excellent guesses nonetheless.
