Open ended thingy
« on: October 27, 2010, 06:41:39 PM »
What is this then? It's open at both ends and hollow all the way through, the Bottom? end has a nice bevel on both sides the small end is sharp edged. My first thought was candle holder but I've not seen one similar. It is also a little on the orange side.

A pie funnel? :nix:

It looks like there might be other bits to it.....

Not thought of that but aren't they vented at the bottom? Maybe that's what you mean by bits missing.

Oil lamp chimney? Maybe not, the glass is usually thin I think.
