What Is It?: Don’t let this one drive you round the twist

Don’t let this one drive you round the twist

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - CONTENTS -

This week’s What Is It? item was found at Wil­low Court An­tique Cen­tre among their col­lec­tion of in­trigu­ing odds and ends of iron, steel, brass and wood.

Be­ing from the mid-19th cen­tury has ruled out the pos­si­bil­ity of this item be­ing a mod­ern, in­dus­trial, de­signer Christ­mas bauble.

How­ever, I am imag­in­ing a Christ­mas tree in a rus­tic ware­house styled home, bend­ing to near breaking point un­der the weight of a dozen of these rusty metal balls.

I know I’ve gone well off track, but if you know what this week’s mys­tery item is, be sure to send us an email with your an­swer to

tassieliv­ing@news.com.au and if you’re among the fastest to work it out you’ll be named with the an­swer be­neath next week’s item.

See you next week­end.
