What Is It?:

This week’s mys­tery ob­ject is an old take on a com­mon house­hold item.

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WHITE HOT -

This week’s What Is It? item was sup­plied by Sorell reader Val Rans­ley.

Many of us have a con­tem­po­rary ver­sion of this at home but this par­tic­u­lar item dates from about 1900.

Many vari­a­tions of this item have been pro­duced since the 16th cen­tury in a range of shapes, sizes and ma­te­ri­als, from wood to earth­en­ware, zinc, cop­per, brass, glass and more.

The spe­cific pur­pose of this item means it is most com­monly found in places like the south­ern parts of Aus­tralia and north­ern Europe.

If you have worked out what this week’s item is, email your an­swer to tassieliv­ing@news.com.au

The first of those to send in the cor­rect an­swer will be im­mor­talised with their names in print be­low next week’s What Is It?
