what use for these Ed. & Leith pieces?
« on: April 30, 2011, 01:53:12 PM »
the mark suggests a date somewhere between the late 1920's and late 1930's.  Quite a good 'ding' - and size wise they measure something like 2.5" tall and 2.5" wide.   But what were they used for - I really can't think, so hope someone might have a suggestion.     Thanks for looking. :)

I have an excellent sense of smell, Paul.
I get a sniff, not a snifter.  :smg:
