What Is It?:
This one could have you in a spin
This one could really have your head in a spin
This week’s mystery device comes to us from Church Antiques in New Town.
This silver gadget is small enough to easily be held in one hand.
At one end of the stick are seven thin fanned prongs.
It is made even more compact by the hollow handle, into which the metal prongs can retract.
The original version was made from wood but designs have changed since the 18th century to incorporate metal or plastic.
