Modern glass rolling pins are stoppered both ends.

Also they do not really have handles, the ends do narrow but just sufficient to accomodate the plastic stoppers.

What's your guess then Frank?
Thank you very much!

Too bad we're not in super spy agency territory regarding technology and the Internet, yet. It would be great if one day we could scan an image and then process that image into "digital bits." Then we could code the bits and run our coded "image" through what's available on the Internet to see what matches. Some day, perhaps. Calling James Bond's Q.

As for the item not being an automobie carriage case, well, that could or could not be, but not all automobile carriage vases looked alike. Not all were clear glass; some were red, blue, green, amber, etc. I'm still not convinced it isn't an auto vase.

And perhaps it is a vase of some sort that did sit inside some sort of holder - something Victorian. I am pretty sure it's not a rolling pin.

The other thing that comes to mind is a round bottomed soda bottle, with an extention for some esoteric reason....

But the glass doesn;t look old enough.
Thank you very much!

Very tacky, hence not mentioned... but as you ask, condom or dildo was the impression I got - but not really seriously.

Well, it certainly strikes me as a bit dangerous for a dildo!!   :oops:  8)  :oops:

but maybe they could use it for checking condoms for little holes?  You could put a fluorescent light stick in the open end, and pop the rubberware on the main bit.....
Thank you very much!
