What is it?:

You’ll need to be ahead of the curve to guess this one

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - CONTENTS -

This week’s un­usual item was found at Smith & Co An­tiques in North Ho­bart.

At first glance you could be for­given for think­ing this may be the smok­ing pipe’s rusty cousin, based on the curved shape. How­ever the wide, ring-shaped end of this gad­get is hol­low.

In its hey­day the metal would have shown far less wear and tear. They may be less com­mon these days but that does not mean they don’t still pull their weight.

At the other end of the metal pipe is a small flared ring, fol­lowed by a screw.

Judg­ing by the coin pic­tured for scale, it is about the size of an adult’s hand.
