Mystery Object ...from Nazeing
« on: September 10, 2007, 10:09:12 AM »
Who can guess the purpose of this item?  It's not something readily available, so you'll have to get your thinking caps on, unless some brain-box knows immediately!

It weighs just over 5kg, and is approximately 27cm in diameter.  Interestingly, it's hollow inside, but sealed completely.  It has a singular purpose, and a definite place that it would be used.  Who can tell me what it is, and then the company that made it?   :)

Is it for condensing water when you are lost in the desert?  you put it in a little hollow in the hot sand and the water condenses on the top and falls down into the rim?

Max, my first thought is some type of decklight to be set into a deck to allow light into a below deck space?

It's a Keep-it-Cold wine or beer bottle holder.
