I’ve no idea what this is. The red metal is a coppery material, the yellow is brassy. I get the feeling it might be the innards of something larger.
If you have an idea what it might be – please do let me know.

One thought on “Find of the day #8 – a mystery item”
This looks like it held a wick. . I have found bits of old oil lamps and they always have this shape for the wick so it could well be part of a lamp. . I know this is an old post so hope this finds you well . .
