I'm not entirely sure about the phrase "when ice cream was first invented" - apart from the tautology, I rather think ice cream has been around longer than penny licks!

Being a mad Dartington collector I love this thread - can a 101 alternative uses be found for a Frank Thrower ring tree?

My possible suggestions are:  substitute chess piece...royal patented miniature biscuit cutter....

I have seen one photgraphed upside down before in an auction.  However, it was a New Zealand auction site so I guess they are quite entitled to photograph it that way round!

Actually dinklepip (what a wonderful name! ;)), This is a twopenny lick! Do you think we should let him know?
I have got one of these, in green, and I always thought it was Krosno?  Anybody confirm this??
I always seem to have one of whatever we are discussing, but then I do have got a LOT of glass!!!! ;)

I was thinking that you could use this as a daisy maker.....I have one in brass (yeah, yeah, I know!!) that you use to make crochet daisies, but glass would be so 'Chic'!! 8)

You could well be right, especially if I tell you it was given to me by my Son-in-Law!! (And it came in a plain brown cardboard box!!) >:D
Where are all the GMB members today?  I expected lots more info about this Tazza/Comport.
And lots of suggestions for alternative uses for the Penny lick/Ring holder. :o

That's interesting. Why (and how) would a "tool" like that be used for crochet work? Strange as it may seem [and don't tell anyone!!] but I can crochet. :o The only "tools", other than the right hook for the job, I have used were pins for laying out larger items for drying after the first wash to set the shape.
