What is this???
Hello Folks! I'm wondering if anyone here has any idea what this old turned wooden object might be? I got it at a thrift store for 60 cents because it intrigues me. It looks as if someone used it for an ash tray, or to tap the dottle from their pipe, because the inside is scorched. It is about 2" tall, and 3 1/4" in diameter. The knob in the center protrudes about 1/4" above the rim. Thanks for looking! Kathy
