IS IT?

This one is clearly a puz­zler

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Home -

This week’s mys­tery item was sent in by Jim Lock­ley of The Friends of Wirksworth.

Wirksworth is a her­itage-listed es­tate in Bel­lerive. Jim said the item, which looks like a glass bell with­out the clap­per in­side, was one of many stored in the old coach house at the es­tate be­fore it was cleaned out in the 1990s.

The item is about 20cm tall and the base is about 17cm in di­am­e­ter.

The Friends of Wirksworth are hop­ing for your help to iden­tify the arte­fact and work out its his­toric use.

If you think you know what this week’s mys­tery item is, send an email with your an­swer to tassieliv­[email protected] Those fastest to send in the cor­rect an­swer will have their names pub­lished be­low next week’s What Is It?
