    Herring
    (2 items)

    I have tried all over to identify this. It's about 17cms high and 12cms diam on base. It's brass or bronze so quite heavy. There is wear on the top from something, maybe thumb or material of some kind. The design looks Indian or mid Eastern. Hope someone can help.

      jewelry, hat, or instrument holder (like an oboe?)

      Thanks Hunter. I think the wear on the tip is significant.

      Good eye, maybe something spun on the top?

      It looks a bit irregular for that. If you pick it up you tend to put your thumb on the tip. The underside has soft cardboard like feel which makes me think something was stuck on there originally and has come off. I thought of a stamp of some kind but you would wear yourself out in no time as its quite heavy. I have no info on the design which may help in ID. Thanks for your interest.

      It looks like it might have been made in India from the patterns.

      can you add a photo or two of the underside? perhaps it was made for sealing something / creasing it / pressing it flat. Almost like a reverse letter-opener. ;)
