What is it?: Some­thing heavy, old and bold as brass.

Heavy, old and bold as brass

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

AF­TER a pretty pre­dictable flood of emails that comes with run­ning a culi­nary What Is It, this week we are mov­ing into com­pletely dif­fer­ent ter­ri­tory. This piece dates back to 1880. For its size, it is quite heavy. It was made from brass and glass by a com­pany in the United King­dom.

It may not be very use­ful at night time. Along its sides there ap­pear to be scales.

For those who know their early ’90s Amer­i­can R&B, a singer in the band TLC shared her sur­name with the com­pany that made this item.

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

Next week we will print the names of the fastest read­ers to write in with the cor­rect an­swer.

And we will pose our next What Is It ques­tion. Good luck.
