    I have this little fellow for as long as I can remember. I got it from my aunt. My best guess is - based on his size - that he was part of a desk set, maybe a paperweight. There are no marks at all.

    Thanks for looking:)

      It could of had a cover over the base & something may of been on that what is it made of.

      Are the holes in the bottom threaded to accommodate a screw?
    4. freiheit freiheit, 8 years ago
      fhrjr2, I have no idea. I will have to have a look when I get home:)

      Thanks a lot, DrFluffy, toolat2, and Zowie.
      It is possible, Zowie, that there was a cover on the bottom. But if it was, it's long gone.
    6. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 8 years ago
      The way the bottom is made it looks like the kind of item that would be mounted on a polished piece of wood and sold in a tourist shop. The screws went up through the bottom of the wood to hold everything together. Lots of trophies they hand out to students are made the same way.

      This will give you a general idea of what I mean

      fhrjr2, I think you are absolutely correct. Mine is almost identical. I guess my little fellow lost its base a long time ago. Remarkable that you found it!!! Thanks:)

      It just seems as if it had 1 at some stage.
    10. freiheit freiheit, 8 years ago
      Yes, Zowie, you are right. It never crossed my mind. That's the benefit of CW: Someone can figure it out!
