It's a fancy shmancy rolling pin.  So what do I win?   ;D

Edited to add:  for dolls.

well, you wouldn't catch me making silly comments and being immature, and anyway I don't have any dolls in my toy cupboard. ;) ;)
How about a liner of some description or a light shade for a small bulb or candle.         Why mention the Ruskin Centre Keith, is there some clue in that name? :)

Just thought I'd mention the Ruskin centre as I was there for the Glass festival today,the prices aarggh!,Anne is the closest so far,in a way,like the idea of a rolling pin Anik but it's thicker at one end and it might do funny things to your pastry! ;D ;D

I'm assuming my pm was wrong Keith, so is it a stand for displaying a fancy marble or something like that?

So is it something made from the neck of a wine bottle, Keith? (It looks awfully wine bottle like - having just bottled 3 gallons of wine, I'm all too familiar with them closeup!) Maybe a candle holder or a spirit/shot measure made from one?

To be honest Anne I'm not sure if it started life as the neck of a bottle,I should have asked him,he also makes these in crystal and various colours,in fact he said he was just finishing one for a client in California,would you like a clue or should I string you along ?
