Does it have a hole through it, or does it hold something?

AAAaarh!

It struck me last night, just as I was dropping off that it's a bottle-neck for a guitar!  :'( too late.

Originally, it really was just the broken neck from a bottle that was used.

Yep,they were cut and polished bottle necks,this one was probably from a bottle but the bloke does make them to order,colours,sizes etc...a sideline from his main business of glass repairs,I'll have to start playing the old guitar again,fingers in the ears time! :o ;D ;D
