What is the food gadget?

calilooDecember 22, 2011

Or at least I presume it is a food thingy.... Not completely sure. But if someone can ID it for me I would really appreciate it! It has silver hallmarks but beyond that I have no idea.....

I believe that is a candle snuffer.

I agree; the top part is representative of a flame.

I'll bet LindaC will know for sure.

I don't think it is a snuffer as silver conducts heat and if you hold it while snuffing...ouchy!

It almost looks like spreader but too small for that.

Beats me!

It's much too small to be a snuffer.

It fits a finger. I suppose you can slip it on a finger to cut something.

Almost looks like a Snuffer, might be one that is left on the candle, top part resembles a Flame.
I have never seen one like this.

PK: they were made in Silver.
While into Collectibles, I've seen all types, Animals,
Angels, Christmas, You name it.

Alexa:
Are there any traces of Soot, on the inside of the cup ?
Rub a white cloth around the inside.
Is it solid Sterling ???

If it is a Snuffer it was probably made in England.

They did Snuffers in Silver. It is probably late 1800's ?

Google, English Hallmarks, maybe you can find the origin.

Country of origin would help....what do the marks indicate?
I am thinking a cheese tryer....used to cut a wedge from a wheel of cheese.
Not a snuffer....

Thanks for all the ideas. I don't think it is a snuffer, but that gave me an idea. Could it be a decoration to put on top of a candle when it isn't burning? It does look like a flame, no there isn't any soot residue on the inside. It would fit on a finger, but you wouldn;t have a lot of control over it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one stumped by this one... more research later this morning.

Thanks again everyone

I polished is up, and what looked like a hallmark was tarnish. It is marked Sterling, and I'm sure it is old. What do you think about the following photos?

Now that's a new one to me! Don't think I have ever seen one of those.....candle toppers? But it looks sort of right, Alexa.

I was going to guess a 'decorative' shot glass! ha!
