It's an Eskimo's baby training potty.

It's an airfield runway light, set into the ground and strong enough to be run over.  This example looks very like the ones we made at Davidsons in a semi-heat resisting glass for Holophane.

 :D  I went out for the day and came back to some very strange ideas on this object...I rather liked submersible window, it does have that look, doesn't it?  Also pretty useful as a spitoon, but I don't think I'd fancy it used for piles to be honest...  :o

Well, bah humbug.  Someone's got it right, although they've got the wrong company.  ;) Well done Adam, although it's cheating a bit as you knew and didn't guess.  >:D ;)  It IS an airfield landing light and it's marked 'Holophane', I think that gives Adam double-points!   :hiclp:

So, if Davidsons didn't make this particular item, then who did?  :D

If not Holophane, then Joblings, Moncrieff or Nazeing.

By the way it is not an airfield landing light, cover or lens perhaps but just a component.
