Adam's mystery object

Not sure what you had in mind Lynne....:D
but quite apart from that this thread had me wondering whether anyone knows what this is for....it is about 6" tall and open at both ends. I do know - but it is a bit obscure, so there might be a prize for the first correct answer!

Goodness!!!  

Maybe a baby feeder?  With a rubber teat on one end and a small stopper on the other?  

(trying hard to keep my mind clean  :oops:  :oops: )
Thank you very much!

Cord light pull?  Nah, maybe not... 6" is a bit big for one of those... how about a loo handle pull from one of the old-fashioned high cisterns?

Good idea, but way off! :D

loo handle pull
interesting lateral thinking but too lateral, although we do have some rather nice loo pulls in the studio, but not like this! :lol:

Keep trying, you can have multiple attempts, Dencill!

Hmmm a door handle part, perhaps? Or how about one of those funnels used for trickle watering plants in pots?  Or a reservoir for a bird's water bowl (keep the base in the bowl and it keeps the bowl topped up). Or a  lampshade for an unusual type of small bulb lamp-fitting?

Somewhere in there you're getting closer, in a way,  but not much closer, really :D

It is an Aaronsoon creation for causing frustration on the GMB. :P

It was created in my studio, but it is a working reproduction of something that has historical value....and I know that they made them at Whitefriars and probably other factories as well!! :D
