What is it?:

Don’t get wound up about this

Try not to let this puz­zler get you too wound up

This week’s mys­te­ri­ous item was found at An­tiques on Mac­quarie in South Ho­bart.

At only 12cm in di­am­e­ter, the cu­ri­ous lit­tle de­vice vaguely re­sem­bles a minia­ture turntable with its black disc en­cased in a sil­ver cov­er­ing and ex­posed wind­ing han­dle.

Be­tween these two parts is a fan-shaped piece of metal on a ro­tat­ing hinge.

There is a brand logo em­bossed on the top of the item which may sound fa­mil­iar, but do you know what it is the com­pany made?

Send us your an­swers in an email ad­dressed to tassieliv­[email protected] and the names of those who are the fastest to cor­rectly iden­tify the mys­tery gad­get will be named on next week’s What is it? page.
