Glass Quiz Fun Question
« on: January 23, 2013, 02:01:19 PM »
I bought an auction box containing my beloved Bohemian cut to clear glass and other glass objects. Amongst them I found this! Despite showing it to friends and relations no one can come up with a definitive answer about what it's for. So I thought to myself I will ask my friends on the Glass Messages Board because they know everything so don't let me down folks. If you press the handle the stopper comes up and presumably something goes down.

Sorry, Meant to say that it is also small, being just six inches high.

A honey dispenser perhaps, especially with the honeycomb. Have you tried putting liquid in it?

Hence the honey comb pattern? ;D ;D

That is so neat. It makes sense. I couldn't understand the fact that any liquid goes straight through because the stopper is attached to the handle and top so when opened there's nothing to stop the liquid going through the hole. Honeycomb would be both liquid and solid with the solids being kept in the top. Ingenious but sticky. Thank you. Do you know what I hadn't even connected the pattern with its use!

That was what I meant; I meant just the honeycomb pattern but that might be the answer

You are absolutely right Christine.  I've seen several of them in my journeys through antique (pfft) shops.   Still sold under the Norpro name  but I suspect the older ones are better quality.   Of course they work with maple syrup if that's your pleasure  :)
