Another challenge - what do I have?
Another family piece, no idea where it came from or the age. I'm going to guess my grandmother bought it in her travels but that's a total guess.
Here's one picture and it click links to an album with others. It's metal, non ferrous, heavy so probably brass, maybe bronze?
Any ideas on age, country of origin, intended purpose or anything else you can think of? I have a house full of stuff I know little to nothing about!
