Perhaps it once had a stand and was used for some kind of chemistry experiment (corrr). The nipple bit holding the excess sediment?

hmmmm  that's a possibility.  You wouldn't have a bung in it though ...

what about an elegant Molokov cocktail holder?
Thank you very much!

Maybe it IS a rolling-pin and the shape is to stop it sticking to the pastry.  Less surface adhesion?   :idea:

At a recent home decor/kitchen ware homeparty I saw a rolling pin with a pattern all over it, so it could be one, but I'm a little confused because the two ends are so different.  :?  :?

One end is stoppered to allow it to be filled with water. No point in having two open ends.

I can't pass this one up!!!!!  Here's my "stab at it" ...... a wine bottle (albeit a rather small one) for the beach.  The nipple would give it more stability when you stuck the bottle in the sand.  Speaking of wine ... my glass is running low.  This piece gave me a good   :lol:  

Thanks and I hope you find out what it really is ..... Lily

maybe it belongs in a car

The more I look at this item, the more I'm convinced it's not a rolling pin. I think it might be an automobile vase.

In the glory days of motoring before WWII - especially in Pierce Arrow automobiles and the classic Rolls Royce models, cars had vases that sat in special holders inside the "carriage" of the vehicle. Usually, the glass vase was placed in some sort of holder that was attached to the interior frame. The holder could be brass or highly polished wood. A flower or two or three were placed in the vase in water. Every vase I've ever seen in a Pierce-Arrow has a narrow, nipple bottom.

The vase from my Rolls is missing .... I never knew exactly what it looked like.  Maybe this is it!!! :lol:  The color, style, and narrow neck lead me to believe it is more likely to be a bottle (with a missing cork).  As to exactly what for, I haven't the foggiest.  Ahhh, the mysteries of life.

Still thinking   :roll: .... Lily

No, I've seen one of those, and they look like the vases from an eperge... nothing as crude as this one. This is much too thick a glass.

Odd thingy.
Thank you very much!
