What is it?:

This one’s bound to put you un­der pres­sure

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TASSLE LIVING -

THIS week we have a beauty of a What Is It? item to present to read­ers that is un­like any other we have run in the past.

It is also un­like any­thing the own­ers of South Ho­bart’s An­tiques on Mac­quarie have ever seen – this is their only one item like this in the store’s 20-odd year his­tory.

This lit­tle wooden gem is be­lieved to have been used in the late 1800s or the turn of the cen­tury. Its pur­pose in life was re­lated to pres­sure. Ah, what a re­lief.

Did you ever play mar­bles as a child? Yeah, me too. Fun game, but the hot com­pe­ti­tion would make me thirsty.

If you know what this is please send us an email to tassieliv­ing@news.com.au

If any read­ers have weird, won­der­ful, odd or rare items they would like to put for­ward for What Is It?, please, drop us a line.
