WHAT is this??!!
My husband found this at a yard sale yesterday, and brought it home to me. I guess he figures it fits one of my junk criterias....made of iron and rusts...and cheap. I think he said he paid 50 cents for it. ;))
He seemed to think that the bell shaped thing went on the end of the chain, but the links are too big to fit through the loop on the "bell". The bell also has no clapper, and looks like it never did. I am thinking it is some kind of lock assembly...obviously, because there is a place for a key in the side of the thing. I can't figure out the long, sharp spike. ????
Looks like something went in the round space in the middle.
He said maybe a light but there are no holes for wiring. No holes for mounting this either. And I don't think it is an oddity put together by someone because it is all riveted together.
I tried to show enthusiasm...but I haven't a clue what to do with this thing. It's awfully evil looking tho, isn't it?
