These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

I did first wonder if it was one of the gas light covers, but the shape doesn't seem quite right for capturing the smoke, and the fitting does not suggest this use.
I have however, seen loads of loose lids of things which do have a dip in the general shape, as this does. Bread bin lids are frequently this sort of shape.
